Fermanagh County Squad 2016

(Oldest Posts First)

Anybody any thoughts on county squad for 2016? Whos impressed in recent championship and league campaigns to merit a place? It should be much the same as 2015 plus 2/3 young fresh olayers.

Paddy Rehill from Enniskillen and Jack McCann from Belleek might be in with a shout cant see many additions though hopefully the likes of barry mccann and ryan lyons can push on after impressing in the championship. Would also be a huge addition if John Woods was back in the fold

I want to wish Fermanagh the best of luck for 2016, where I think you might be serious challengers for the Ulster title.

Most people don't give Fermanagh a hope in hell of winning Ulster, but you are one of the few teams in Ireland who has real fight in them. It doesn't matter if you're behind by a large margin, Fermanagh keep plugging away and it brought them to an All Ireland QF where you lost by 8 point to eventual All Ireland Champions Dublin.

I heard on the grapevine that the county squad are due to meetup in a couple of weeks time. Any news on new additions to the squad?

From what I've heard the management is meeting up with the squad this weekend to discuss the plans for the coming months to get the ball rolling.
There has been a few new additions to the squad. Some good, some average. Being involved will definitely bring then on. From my own club, disappointed that Kevin McDonnell wasn't asked, club captain Stephen Sheridan and Ronan Ormbsy. They have been and integral part of irvinestown intermediate win and push for promotion.
Maybe they will yet. Its an achievement for any lad to be asked to join up with their county.

Going by the herald, Ryan Hanna, Thomas Clarke, Finbar gillen, Stephen. Mc Gillion and Pat Cadden.

I think there maybe a few more additions as time goes on.

If irvinestown manage to get a run in ulster, there has to be couple of lads worth a shot from there.

Irvinestown hasn't made much impression in the bigger scale of things so I thing it will take them another year below they are considered. From the ones to be taken on the squad I think one or two would need to beef up a bit because when you look at the other counties the players are tallish and well muscled up. Some chosen previously for the squad never got a run out for the main league and championships games and might get a run out on the McKenna Cup. Fermanagh will find it hard to stay in div2 so I think their best year is just passed.

It will be interesting to see Pete McGrath's squad for 2016. It will be a tough challenge competing in NFL division 2 but let's hope it will gives the Fermanagh players plenty of experience for next year's Ulster championship.
The playing squad members in this year where Thomas Treacy, Michael Jones, Tiarnan Daly, Niall Cassidy, Declan McCusker, James McMahon, Martin O'Brien, Eoin Donnelly, Richard O'Callaghan, Barry Mulrone, Ryan Jones, Damien Kelly, Paul McCusker, Sean Quigley, Tomas Corrigan, Ryan McCluskey, Ruairi Corrigan, Ciaran Flaherty. Aidan Breen , Conal Jones, Chris Snow , Che Cullen, Darren McQuaide, Daniel Kille, Eoin McManus, James Allen, James Duffy, Barry McCann, Eamon McHugh, Ryan Lyons, Sean McManus.
Any thoughts on how the 2016 squad will shape up?
