Okay, it’s time to wrap up the poll on our Player of the League for 2019. A great League campaign it proved to be for the county, one in which several players stood tall for us.
None more so than Aidan O’Shea. His switch back to midfield was one of the undoubted successes of this spring campaign, where he forged an extremely strong partnership with his Breaffy clubmate Matthew Ruane.
That positional shift occurred down in Tralee and it’s no coincidence that, from then on, the team had a far better balance and drive to it. The more defensive role Aidan took on suited his talents far better and it also gave Mattie the opportunity to rampage forward, which he did repeatedly to good effect.
It was no surprise, then, that it was this midfield pairing who dominated the voting in our Player of the League poll. Indeed, between them they hoovered up 86% of all votes cast.
Aidan comes out on top in the poll, garnering 55% support and so he’s our Player of the League for 2019. Hearty congrats to him on this richly deserved award.
