Damian Barton pleased by opening Derry McKenna Cup victory

New Derry manager Damian Barton says that his team's opening 4-16 to 2-12 McKenna Cup win over Antrim was a positive exercise.

"Scoring 4-16 is a positive. Conceding 2-12 is maybe not so positive but it gives something to reflect on during the week," said the Derry boss.

Barton said that other members of his panel will be given a chance to impress in next Sunday's game against Tyrone.
