Right, the voting is done on our first Man of the Match poll for 2024 here on the blog and we have a clear winner. By a wide margin, Fergal Boland is your choice as our MOTM from yesterday’s game.
The Aghamore clubman didn’t take long to make his presence felt at Pearse Stadium yesterday, firing over Mayo’s opening point with barely a minute on the clock. He ended the game with three points from play to his credit and he assisted a number of scores too, including for Eoghan McLaughlin’s goal, a score that gave us a lead in the match we’d never subsequently lose.
Fergal topped the poll with 29% of the vote, followed by TG4’s choice of MOTM, Paddy Durcan, on 14%. Both Fergal and Paddy were also included in the GAA’s Team of the Week.
Others to feature prominently in the MOTM poll were Sam Callinan (13%), Eoghan McLaughlin and Jordan Flynn (both on 8%) and Jack Carney (7%). All of them played major parts in yesterday’s win at Salthill.
Well done to them and in particular to Fergal Boland, our MOTM from yesterday’s game.
