You’ll probably know by now that Cillian O’Connor was selected as the No.1 senior club footballer within the county in the Top 100 Club Footballers series in the Mayo News.
What you may not know is that the selection of the Top 100 was undertaken by representatives of every football club in the country. This meant that the vote to select the Top 50 senior players involved the representatives from all sixteen senior clubs.
Because all the clubs took part in the selection process, winning it represents quite an honour. I think you could sense that from what Cillian had to say to Billy Joe Padden in the interview that’s in the latest episode of the Mayo News football podcast. If you haven’t yet listened to that episode you’ll find it here.
There’s loads on the culmination of the Top 100 Club Footballers series in the latest edition of the Mayo News. In order to showcase the excellent sports coverage that’s still appearing week after week in the paper, the Mayo News have decided to make the latest sports supplement available free of charge.
