The All-Star list for 2020 was announced this morning and our run to December’s final sees us well recognised on it. In total we’ve twelve players nominated for the All-Star team, we’ve one player in the running for Footballer of the Year and, with all three nominees coming from within our ranks, we’re guaranteed to win the Young Footballer of the Year award.
Not surprisingly in light of our melding of youth and experience in the team last year, our list of All-Star nominees is a mix of older lads and fresh faces. Here’s the list of all our nominees for the different awards:
Goalkeeper: David Clarke.
Defenders: Oisin Mullin, Eoghan McLaughlin, Chris Barrett, Lee Keegan, Paddy Durcan.
Midfielders: Mattie Ruane.
Forwards: Cillian O’Connor, Kevin McLoughlin, Ryan O’Donoghue, Aidan O’Shea, Tommy Conroy.
Footballer of the Year: Cillian O’Connor.
Young Footballer of the Year: Oisin Mullin, Eoghan McLaughlin, Tommy Conroy.
The full list of the football nominees for 2020 is here. As expected, champions Dublin lead the way with thirteen, followed by us on twelve, Cavan with seven, Tipperary with four, Donegal (three), Galway (two) and one each for Cork, Limerick and Kerry.
The winners of the 2020 awards will be announced next month. Congrats to all the Mayo lads nominated and the best of luck to them in the selection process for the award winners.
