Doing a post on our Man of the Match always jars a bit when it involves a game we’ve lost and the feeling is all the more pronounced on this occasion seeing as yesterday’s defeat meant our relegation from Division One of the National League. The basic premise of the exercise remains valid, however, in that it helps to illuminate strong performers within our ranks and, despite the result yesterday, a number of lads stood strong for us.
Of particular note in that respect was the performance put in by our flying corner-forward Tommy Conroy. He was prominent throughout and his dazzling speed caused trouble in the Tyrone ranks every time he got possession. He finished with a personal tally of 1-3, all of it from play, and, with 42% of the vote, he’s our Man of the Match from yesterday’s game.
Others who did well for us yesterday and who feature strongly in the MOTM poll were Ryan O’Donoghue (13% of the votes), Eoghan McLaughlin (7%), Paddy Durcan (7%), Oisín Mullin (4%) and Darren Coen (4%). Well done to all of them.
