“We’re not proud of ourselves as a county, but I don’t think there was much of that.”

HAMPSY TYRON’S TRIAL says his team is “not proud” of the fight that unfolded in the final minutes of their clash in the league with the Army, but also believes the incident was disproportionate.

Referee David Goff issued five red cards after the parties engaged in a major brawl, and four Tyrone players were sent to the line. Hampsy was one of the players who were executed along with Kieran McGee, Michael McKernan and Peter Hart.

Greg McCabe of the Army was the fifth to receive a red card when Kieran McGuinney’s team won by six points.

Hampsi says an appeal is underway tonight against those suspensions ahead of their next Division 1 match against Kildare on Sunday.

“Tonight at Croc Park. Tonight we hope to learn more about what we are up to.

“I think the players will have to move on to that, so there will be a hearing and I guess … to be honest, I’ve never been involved in it, so I’m not too sure what’s going on, but the players will be down tonight and we let’s see what we can do. “

Asked what he thought of the fight, he replied:

“I guess it’s a derby with two Ulster teams, two neighboring counties, so I just feel like everything is out of control. It’s something we’re not proud of as a county and as players, but look, I don’t think there was much to it. For myself, honestly, there wasn’t much.

“But look, it happened, and we’re not proud of what happened.”

The All-Irish champions are still looking for their first victory in the 2022 National League after losing to Armagh and a draw against Monaghan in the first round of the competition.

Hampsi hopes Kilder’s visit to Healy Park on Sunday will be an opportunity to bring the season out of place.

“Yes, Kilder on Sunday at home in Healy Park. It was a rather difficult start to the championship, a draw with Monachen and a defeat by the Army. We will be looking forward to this weekend and hopefully get our first win on the board.

“I guess after the holiday I feel that we may be a couple of weeks behind the other teams, but we are gaining momentum again. I know our performance in the first half wasn’t that good, but I think our performance in the second half was, you know, I thought the guys performed well and we did well enough to get back four points, but, unfortunately we were unable to win.

“No, look, we’re picking up speed again, and as I mentioned earlier, with a week’s break and then again on Sunday against Kildare, hopefully we can win.”

Padreig Hampsey spoke at the launch of the East Coast Bakehouse brand “In the Zone”, which was recognized as the “Official Protein Cookies and GAA / GPA Cookies” as a player choice.
