Harte urges Cavanagh to stay on

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte hopes captain Sean Cavanagh will continue for another year at inter-county level.

Harte wants the five-time All Star, who was sent off in the Red Hands' 0-13 to 0-12 All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Mayo at Croke Park on Saturday, to take time to consider his future.

"Sean needs time to reflect, because it is a difficult and challenging time for him," Harte told BBC NI Sport.

"Hopefully, he will be able to look a things through a different lens in the time to come."

Tyrone were National League Division 2 and McKenna Cup champions this year, but Harte says the All-Ireland defeat to Mayo has taken the shine off the season.

"Winning the league this year was nice, but in Tyrone people want the All-Ireland," he said.

"It is not considered a really successful season if you do not get the All-Ireland, and this is another year gone by when we don't have it.

"We are a developing and evolving side and maybe it was a bit premature to expect them to have enough quality and experience to win the All-Ireland because it does not happen easily.

"But I believed this team was capable of at least getting to the semi-finals.

"There are a lot of people in that dressing room who are hurt about the outcome of the game.

"There was a degree if under-performing, but also a degree of the opposition not letting you perform the way you want to."
