Paul Grimley was slated for his naive tactics when Armagh lost to Cavan in the Ulster championship last year. Martin Dunne took advantage of the vast space afforded to him by the Armagh defence and scored eight points from play. Grimley watched on and made no change to his system.

He issued an apology to Armagh fans in the aftermath of the defeat saying: "As to what went wrong, you may or may not know, we have adopted a very attack-minded approach from the start of the year, a high-pressure, high-risk strategy which was practiced throughout the league with limited success.

"But we will persist with our plan, although we shall address the risk element of our tactic and plan B will arrive when plan A is polished, as these will need to be worked on over months, if not years, to get right."
