Voting has now concluded in the first Mayo GAA Blog Man of the Match poll for 2018 and we have a winner. With 36% of the vote, our MOTM from yesterday’s NFL Division One opener against Monaghan is Eoin O’Donoghue.
The young Belmullet man has been in the senior squad for well over a year at this stage but he’s had to wait patiently for his chance to shine. He made an impressive debut off the bench last February against Kerry in Tralee but it wasn’t until yesterday that he made his full competitive debut at senior level for the county.
He sure made the most of it, putting in a confident display combining vigilant defending and attacking verve. As debuts go, this was an impressive one. Huge congrats to Eoin on his performance yesterday and on being voted our MOTM by the blog’s readers.
Others who stood out yesterday and who polled well in the vote were match-winner Paddy Durcan (16% of the vote), Ger Cafferky (12%) and Neil Douglas (8%). Well done to all of them.
Details of the main vote-getters in this week’s MOTM poll are as follows:
