The votes are in for our final MOTM poll from this year’s League campaign and once again, for the third time in eight League matches to be precise, it’s Jason Gibbons who wins the accolade. It wasn’t in any sense a marginal call either, as the Ballintubber man claimed 56% of the vote for his performance against Derry yesterday, placing him well clear of Colm Boyle (16%) and Mikie Sweeney (11%).
Congrats to Jason, not just on this latest award but also for his impressive showings right throughout this League campaign. Pitched in against Kildare in Round 1 following Tom Parsons’ injury early on in that game, Jason grasped this long overdue opportunity with both hands, to the extent that he’s now (or at least should be) our first-choice midfielder heading into the championship. In an area of the field where we’re not exactly struggling for options at the minute, that’s a fairly notable achievement. Here’s hoping Jason can now go on to even better things as we head into the summer’s action.
