GAA: Armagh lose Kieran Toner for Tyrone clash

Armagh's Kieran Toner

Armagh's Kieran Toner

Armagh midfielder Kieran Toner has been ruled out of Sunday’s All-Ireland Football qualifier against Tyrone.

Toner was injured late in the first half of last weekend’s Ulster semi-final replay defeat by Monaghan.

Caolan Rafferty remains out for the Orchard County because of a broken hand while team manager Paul Grimley has also said that Ethan Rafferty and Ciaran Rafferty will be unavailable.

Harold will be expected to replace Toner again at centre-field but the big talking point in the Armagh selection will be whether Aaron Kernan is granted a start on this occasion.

Kernan has not started in any of Armagh’s three championship games to date although he has been introduced as a substitute.

The wing-back’s omission from the starting line-up has caused some disquiet in Crossmaglen circles and it will be interesting to see whether the Armagh management is minded to start Kernan.
