Tyrone hurlers not allowed to train on grass pitch

Tyrone manager Mattie Lennon celebrates at the final whistle of the 2014 Rackard Cup final

Tyrone hurling boss Mattie Lennon has expressed his frustration at being denied access to a grass pitch in the Garvaghey Centre of Excellence last week.

Instead, the Red Hands were forced to train on an artificial surface which Lennon felt wasn't ideal ahead of last weekend's postponed Allianz League Division 3A game against Roscommon.

"I feel we could have got more help to get pitches to train on because I think we have been left a wee bit out in the cold, that we haven't got pitches when we should have got them," he told the Irish News.

"I do feel disappointed about that. The preparations haven't been good because it has been hard to get a pitch."
