I told you Al.!..that interview with Sean C was a dig at CB over a lack of funding.
Not saying it was him who sent the email btw. But things must be bad to go to the press…
An unnamed Tyrone footballer has claimed an “ongoing battle” with the county’s GAA board over funding is hurting the team’s All-Ireland chances.
The anger about the Red Hand squad’s funding was aired in an email sent to Irish radio station Newstalk’s Off the Ball programme.
“It’s becoming impossible to prepare ourselves to win an All-Ireland,” said the unnamed player.
“We are told that we need to tighten our belts.”
A recent Irish Independent survey listed Tyrone as only being 25th in terms of spending on senior inter-county football teams in 2016.
The county’s funding last year was reported to be £17,800 down on the 2015 figure.
Tyrone spent £408,000 on the team in 2016 with the highest spenders Mayo’s figure said to be almost £1.4m.
“When we look at the money spent on the preparation of the county teams we are nowhere near the top spenders,” continued the player’s email.
“Most club people and fans will be sickened to hear this but it’s time to call it out.”
