Tyrone attacker Harry Loughran has been forced to quit the game at the age of 26 due to injury. 

Loughran, who played a key role in the Red Hands' run to the 2018 All-Ireland final, hitting vital goals against Donegal and Meath, suffered from a chronic back problem throughout his career. 

He admitted losing his battle to revive his career following surgery to address the problem in November 2019, revealing tonight that he will not play again. 

He underwent surgery in November 2019 in a bid to rectify the problem, but has not been able to return to action. 

Loughran made five Championship appearances during Tyrone’s run to the All-Ireland final in 2018, but failed to feature in a single game in the last two seasons as a result of the condition. 

Loughran was a proven goal-scorer, hit the net eight times during Moy’s triumphant All-Ireland Club IFC campaign in 2018.
