Peter Canavan's Son In Line For Tyrone Senior Debut

Peter Canavan's Son In Line For Tyrone Senior Debut

Is the fact that it's Christmas again reminding you of the relentless march of time, and consequently making you aware of your own flimsy mortality?


Don't worry, here's something else that will do the trick - per the Ulster Herald,  Peter Canavan's son Darragh has been training with the Tyrone senior squad of late and might make his debut in the McKenna Cup game with Down next week.

The game is on Thursday night (8pm) at Celtic Park, and may feature Canavan, who was so impressive in Tyrone's All-Ireland win at under-17 level last year.

Canavan scored 1-3 in the decider against Roscommon, and this was the critical goal:


Canavan captained Errigal Ciaran to minor championship success this year, too, and earned an endorsement from Joe Brolly for an appearance last year:

It is amazing to me how these things go down through the genes. He is just like a mini Peter.

I was just sitting there with my mouth open thinking ‘Oh my God, this kid is going to torture (us)’. This kid – left foot, right foot, his passing, his moving, his head was up all the time.

Just like his dad. If you didn’t know the younger Canavan was playing on the pitch, you would have just said ‘oh my God, that looks like Peter Canavan reincarnated.
