The votes are in and counted in our first Man of the Match poll of 2019. We had a number of strong performers last night at MacHale Park but, with 30% support in the poll, you’ve decided that the player who should get the MOTM accolade was Jason Doherty.
It’s a fitting reward, not just for the hard-working display put in last night by the Burrishoole man but also because the match marked Jason’s 100th appearance in a Mayo jersey. Too often, Doc’s contribution to the cause is overlooked so it’s great to see him getting the recognition he deserves on this occasion.
Others to feature prominently in the poll were Brian Reape, whose thunderous goal in the closing stages helped him hoover up 13% of the votes cast, with Paddy Durcan (11%), Brendan Harrison and Donal Vaughan (both 9%) all attracting significant support as well.
Congrats to all of them and to the team as a whole, as it was undoubtedly the strong collective effort that saw us over the line last night.
