Gormley has been one of the most consistent performers in a Tyrone jersey and was pivotal in the 2003, 2005 and 2008 All-Ireland winning Tyrone county teams.
His greatest moment in a Tyrone jersey came in the 2003 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final against Armagh. With two minutes remaining in the match, and Tyrone a vulnerable three points ahead, Steven McDonnell, who had already scored five goals in the Championship had picked up the ball in a very dangerous area, and was bearing down on goal. As he kicked the ball, Gormley made an outstanding diving block to prevent an almost certain goal.
In August 2006, Gormley suffered a double leg break in a club game. This ruled him out for the rest of the year, although he returned to action in 2007, and his performances earned him a Gaelic Players Association award.
Gormley made the Tyrone senior squad managed by Art McRory before he made the U-21 squad managed by current senior boss Mickey Harte.
Notes: J Devine was on the starting lineup but had to withdraw from the squad due to a family bereavement. Stephen O'Neill's name was not in the match program due to there only being space for thirty names. He played, and came on as a substitute with the number 31 on his back.
Paul Quinn's name was not in the match program due to there only being space for thirty names.
