The votes are in and counted in our third Man of the Match poll of 2019. This time the voting was reasonably close but we have a clear winner in the poll and he is Ger Cafferkey. He wins the MOTM award with 35% of the votes.
Ger put in a real no-nonsense masterclass for us at full-back last night. Every time the ball came the way of his man Ger got a hand or a foot in to break up the attack. He was cool and composed from start to finish and his display at the back was one of the main reasons our goal was never in danger of being breached.
While Ger’s performance last night was outstanding – he won the MOTM award on Eir Sport as well – Aidan O’Shea’s display also deserves mention. Aidan has been in super form so far this year and he put in another serious shift around the middle against Cavan. His contribution to the cause is recognised by the 27% share of the vote that he polled.
Others to feature strongly in this week’s poll were Diarmuid O’Connor (6%), Andy Moran and Michael Plunkett (both on 4%). Well done to all of them.
A practical way to recognise the lads’ good form on the field is to play the Mayo GAA Lotto. The jackpot prize on offer in this week’s draw is €12,100, with tickets for the Dublin game and hotel accommodation in the capital that weekend up for grabs too. You can play the Lotto here.
