Donegal bring in McGowan and McHugh

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Donegal boss Jim McGuinness has brought a couple of new faces into his Donegal squad for their forthcoming McKenna Cup campaign.

Mark McGowan has been recalled to the panel after a four-year absence from the county set-up. He made his championship debut in 2008 under Brian McIvor, but hasn't been involved much since then.

He had an outstanding year with his club St. Eunan's this season, kicking the winning point in the county final against Naomh Chonaill, and that form has prompted McGuinness to bring him into his All-Ireland Championship-winning squad.

Another player brought in by McGuinness is Ryan McHugh, brother of GAA/GPA All-Star Mark McHugh and son of Donegal legend Martin McHugh.

The teenager was the captain and outstanding player on the Kilcar team which won the Donegal minor championship recently, and also had a fine year playing with the Kilcar seniors.

Both players will be looking to cement their places in the squad for the Allianz National League with strong performances in the McKenna Cup.

McGuinness said he will bring in more players over the coming weeks.
