Right, time to pull the shutters down on this one: I’ve just closed the Man of the Match poll from last night’s game and the winner by a very large margin is Colm Boyle.
The Davitts dynamo – who really stood tall for us on an evening when the same couldn’t be said of all his teammates – hoovered up 65% of the votes in the poll to claim the award. Congrats to him on his uplifting and battling contribution to the cause last night.
Evan Regan (5%), Lee Keegan (4%) and Keith Higgins (also 4%) took the minor placings in this particular poll. Well done to them as well for their efforts on what was in every respect a difficult evening for us.
