The votes are in and counted for our seventh Man of the Match award of this year’s League campaign. Step forward, Kevin McLoughlin, your name is – deservedly – on this one.
Kevin was in electrifying form for us at MacHale Park yesterday. Back to his livewire best and looking very much at home closer to the opposition posts, the Knockmore man helped himself to 2-2, in the process playing a very significant part in the win that propels us into next weekend’s League decider.
Kevin wins this week’s award with 38% of the vote. Not far behind him were Fergal Boland, whose dashing display – capped by three delicious points from play – earned him 24% in the polls. Aidan O’Shea, who put another mammoth shift yesterday, came next on 12%.
Last week, Aidan became the latest Mayo player to follow up winning this sought-after accolade by also claiming the GAA’s Footballer of the Week honour. Kevin now has the chance to do the same and if you want to vote for him in that one you need to do so (by 10am tomorrow) via the GAA’s Instagram account – details here.
Here’s the leaderboard from this week’s MOTM poll. Well done to all the lads who feature on it.
