Right, the polling stations are closed, the votes are in and the winner of our first MOTM award for 2015 is Kevin Keane, who put in a storming performance at full-back for us against Kerry down in Killarney yesterday. The popular Westport player – who also claimed the TG4 MOTM award yesterday – was the clear winner in the poll, with 35% of all votes cast (328 in all).
The battle for second spot was great fun altogether, involving as it did a three-cornered tussle between Michael Conroy, Jason Doherty and Keith Higgins. Zippy’s pace got him out in front early on but then Doc’s tenacity and strength came to the fore but it wasn’t enough as Mickey C jinked this way and that and, like he did in Fitzgerald Stadium, got the vital scores when it counted. The Davitts man claimed runner-up spot on 17% of the vote while Jason and Keith couldn’t be separated at 16% each.
Well done to them and to all the lads on a great performance yesterday.
