The result in MacHale Park last night may not have been all that close – I’ve seen it described in parts of media today as a four-point hiding – but the Man of the Match poll on our top performer sure was. The closest such vote we’ve ever had on the site, in fact, with four players in the hunt for the award this time round.
In the end, Aidan O’Shea – who was also voted MOTM here on the blog for his performance against Galway last time out – edged it with 15% of the vote. Hot on his heels came Lee Keegan with 14%, while both Colm Boyle and Kevin McLoughlin each attracted 12% support in the poll.
I usually adorn a post of this kind with a photo of the player who wins the poll in action in the game in question but, on this occasion, I can’t locate one. Because of this, combined a nod to the closeness in the voting, I’ve gone with the above photo of the team instead.
Here’s how the leaderboard in this week’s MOTM poll went. Well done to Aidan and everyone else who polled prominently in it.
