Last night was a frustrating one all round from our perspective, in a game where we lost momentum just at the point when we looked well set to complete a successful comeback against Galway.
A number of our players found the going difficult last night but one man who can be more than happy with his performance is midfielder Matthew Ruane. In only his second start in a competitive fixture at senior level for the county the Breaffy player put in a real hard-working shift at centre-field. It was a performance capped by a great point from play to spark our comeback after half-time.
Mattie’s strong display earns him this week’s Man of the Match award. He wins the award with 35% of the vote, with Jason Doherty next on 17% and Aidan O’Shea on 9%. Well done to Mattie and here’s to more of the same from him in the future.
