The polling booth has closed and by a very wide margin – 52% of all votes cast (166 in all) – Adam Gallagher is the overwhelming choice as Mayo MOTM from yesterday’s game with Tyrone. On what wasn’t a day to remember for the team, the performance of the young Mayo Gaels man – lining out for only the second time in a league match for us – really stood out and his nine-point contribution as well as his general play marked him out as by far our most prominent player in Healy Park yesterday.
Well done to Adam and also to Lee Keegan who attracted 22% of the vote to finish clear of the rest of the field in second. Thanks too to all the mammies, WAGs and assorted groupies for ensuring that everyone (bar two lads whom I’m not going to name) ended up with at least one vote. And there was me thinking you were all being on the level when we were having that debate about the merits or otherwise of the players’ rating proposal.
