Intermediate Team of the Year – Midfielders

Richard Keenan (Carrickcruppen)

Keenan went through a mountain of work throughout the championship campaign to get Carrickcruppen over the line.

His accuracy from the dead ball was key for his side and he didn’t shrink from his defensive duties either.

The youngster ended the season as joint-top scorer for Carrickcruppen, with 0-13 across the four games.

Niall Rowland (Culloville)

A Rolls Royce of a player, Niall Rowland was simply outstanding in the Blue and White of Culloville.

Rattled the net against Shane O’Neill’s, nailed the winner that beat St Paul’s and commanded the semi-final against Sarsfields.

Rowland may have had a quiet final, but it was his standout performances that got Culloville to that stage.

Eamon McGeown (Sarsfields)

Manned the centre of the park for the High Moss men, who will have been disappointed not to have made the decider.

McGeown controlled the skies in the quarter final against Whitecross and chipped in with 0-2 that day.

Tried hard and fought against the tide in the last four tie with Culloville and nailed a further 0-2 in the semi final.

Jack Cunningham (Carrickcruppen)

One of the unsung heroes of Carrickcruppen’s 2021 championship success, Cunningham had a fantastic season at centerfield.

Provided Blaine Hughes with a big target on his restarts and linked up superbly well with Richard Keenan.

Cunningham probably had his best performance in the Intermediate showpiece and made some outstanding fetches.

Shane Carragher (Culloville)

His displays possibly flew in under the radar, but Carragher was key in getting the Blues to the final game of the championship.

Carragher did all the dirty work around the middle of the field and was full of running in all of his sides outings.

Broke up the play in the centre provided cover for the raiding runs of his midfield partner Niall Rowland.

Eoghan Daly (Tullysaran)

The Tullysaran midfielder carried the fight brilliantly against Carrickcruppen, even when things weren’t going well.

The O’Connell’s men crashed out of the championship at the semi-final stage losing 1-13 to 1-9 to Cruppen.

Daly never gave up that evening and was his sides best performer, driving forward from the middle to land two points.
