IT’S THAT TIME of the week again, when you get to decide who was your Anthony Conaghan Cars Player of the Week.
Last week’s winner was Michael Langan of St Michael’s, who put in a fine showing in his team’s All-County Football League Division 1 win over Glenswilly.
This week there was a variety of action so there’s plenty to choose from. We have also teamed up with Murphy’s Gloves, so there’s something on offer for our weekly winner.
Have a look at the nominations below and cast your vote. We’ll announce the winners then come Friday evening.
1 – Michael Boyle (Termon)
FOLLOWING an absence of the best part of a year, Michael Boyle is certainly back with a bang now having played his part as Termon upset Gaoth Dobhair to give themselves a great chance of reaching the last eight of the Donegal SFC. Boyle denied Kevin Cassidy and Daire Ó Baoill at the Burn Road as his Termon side overcame the team from Magheragallon.
2 – Aaron Kelly (MacCumhaill’s)
THE Twin Towns side had too much for their neighbours Glenfin on Saturday night at MacCumhaill Park to put themselves in with a shout of progression to the quarter-finals of the Donegal SFC. The main man in that performance was Aaron Kelly, who scored two goals.
3 – Anthony Browne (St Mary’s, Convoy)
ST Mary’s, Convoy, are in the knockouts of the JFC – against Letterkenny Gaels – this weekend thanks to a 1-15 to 1-5 win over Naomh Padraig from Lifford. The main reason for that 10-point win was because of the form of Anthony Browne, who scored 1-4.
4 – Ryan Cunningham (Killybegs)
KILLYBEGS were winners of the Southern Regional Board Under-16 Championship on Monday when they beat Naomh Conaill 4-4 to 2-9 in Ardara. In a contest that took a little while to come to the boil, it eventually came to life and two goals and a point for Ryan Cunningham meant the title was on its way back to Fintra.
5 – Sean Curran (MacCumhaill’s)
MACCUMHAILL’S are looking to win a first SHC since 2010 and on Friday they got the better of their neighbours Setanta in the semi-final on a 2-14 to 1-12 scoreline. Sean Curran, the wing-forward, played a vital role in that win with a first half goal part of a personal total of 1-3.
6 – Damian Diver (Naomh Padraig, Muff)
A ONE-POINT win over Urris, 0-8 to 0-7, in Buncrana on Friday night was enough to sent Naomh Padraig from Muff into the last four of the JFC. Pivotal to that win was Damian Diver, who gave an excellent showing throughout for the side from Ture.
7 – Jamie Brennan (Bundoran)
JAMIE BRENNAN scored 1-6 in Bundoran’s 1-15 to 0-13 win over Ardara at Gaelic Park. Brennan had an injury-hit time earlier this year, but is back on form and showed his scoring prowess on Saturday. A real livewire, he was a thorn in Ardara’s side.
8 – Stephen McBrearty (Kilcar)
KILCAR enjoyed an excellent 2-15 to 0-7 win over St Michael’s in Towney on Sunday to move to the top of Group B in the Donegal SFC. Martin McHugh’s side had a number of standout players, but none more so that Stephen McBrearty, whose first half goal set the home side on their way, whilst also adding three points.
