Morgan wants Harte to stay on

Tyrone goalkeeper Niall Morgan believes Mickey Harte should be offered a contract extension to end the uncertainty within the county.

Harte agreed a new two-year term in 2015 but last month he asked the Tyrone County Board for a further one-year extension, which would have seen him remain in charge of the senior footballers until the end of 2018.

However, the Tyrone County Board turned down his request and Morgan believes they must reverse their decision immediately.

“They need to give Mickey an extra year, straight away, say that what happened was a mishap and move on because it’s not nice for the players,” Morgan told the Irish News.

“We’re talking about it, the County Board is obviously talking about it, people within the county are talking about it - and it just creates a level of uncertainty around everything, which is no good for anybody.

“To me, what the refusal of an extension said is the County Board don’t think Mickey’s going to do well next year. They mustn’t feel that we’re going to be successful next year, that we need to get rid of Mickey after next year. It’s a weird situation.

"You only have to look at Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s situation with Kerry. Their county officers all knew in July that Fitzmaurice was staying on and the media knew nothing about it. The minute Mickey Harte handed in an extension request, it was everywhere.”
