Antrim’s footballers have received a boost with the news that former All-Star nominee Michael McCann has returned to the fold.

The Cargin clubman, who made the All-Stars shortlist back in 2009, hasn’t featured for the Saffrons since 2016 but he revealed to BBC Sport NI that he trained with Lenny Harbinson’s squad on Tuesday.

“I have returned to the squad,” the 34-year-old confirmed. “It is something I've given a lot of thought to.

"I have been talking to Lenny Harbinson about a potential return and went back to training on Tuesday evening.

"I had taken soundings from some of the more senior players such as my brother Tomas and Paddy Cunningham and their feedback was that there's a lot of positivity around the squad and that helped me make my mind up.

“It will take a little time to reintegrate but it's good to be back.

“My aim now is to get fully fit and hope that I have something to offer the Saffrons on the field of play.”
