Junior Team of the Year – Midfielders

Stephen Sheridan (Forkhill)

The Forkhill captain led by example for his side on their way to eventually getting their hands on the Junior Championship crown.

Sheridan gave an almost flawless performance in the drawn final, hitting three awesome points and commanding the game from midfield.

Was involved in a lot of important moments in the replay, none more so than his assist for Jemar Hall’s levelling score to bring the game to extra time.

Callum O’Neill (Belleek)

Arguably the main man in the Belleek team, O’Neill captained his side to the Junior decider and was superb throughout.

Showed serious bottle to land the huge score that brought the first game to a replay when Belleek looked dead and buried.

O’Neill’s power and direct running style caused serious problems for opposition and he often got in on the scoring act.

Barry Shannon (Forkhill)

After losing several Senior Championship Finals with Dromintee in his early days, Barry Shannon finally got his hands on a championship medal.

He was an inspiration when called upon in Forkhill’s quarter final win over Eire Og and again when starting against Derrynoose.

Gave absolutely everything he had in both games against Belleek and was always a regular scorer with his trusty left boot.

Stephen Finnegan (Belleek)

Central to Belleek’s defensive system, Finnegan would drop back into the sweeper role and cut off any free space.

Performed well in the job and delivered his defensive duties brilliantly, turning over many attacks throughout the year.

Also offered an attacking option from deep and got his name on the scoresheet against Clady, Newtown and Forkhill (drawn game).
