Junior Team of the Year – Midfielders

Conor Moley (Dorsey)

Deservingly picked up The Sideline Eye Player of the Week prize for his outstanding performance against Belleek.

Moley dragged the Emmets back into contention in that semi-final clash and almost got his side over the line.

His lung bursting runs proved unstoppable and the Dorsey midfielder had a brilliant championship campaign.

Callum O’Neill (Belleek)

One of the standout performers not only for Belleek but throughout the entire Junior division and has been for a few years.

His removal from action against Dorsey was a major blow for Belleek as he was dominating the game.

Made an instant impact when introduced against Cross IIs and kicked the insurance score that won the championship.

Rico Kelly (Crossmaglen II)

The experience and knowhow of Rico Kelly helped Crossmaglen reach the decider of the Junior Championship.

Played an important role in getting the Rangers to that stage and was their standout midfielder this year.

Provided a great target for kickouts and got back to help out the Crossmaglen rear guard on several occasions.

Martin Hearty (Dorsey)

Another standout performer in the Dorsey side that gave Belleek a real scare in the Junior semi-final.

Hearty, along with his midfield partner Moley, dominated the middle of the park with some breath-taking catches.

The Dorsey captain was inspirational in getting his side to the last four and put his body on the line numerous times.

James McVerry (Newtown)

The St Michael’s midfielder only featured in one championship game but was one of the best players on the field.

His performance against Derrynoose proved how good of a footballer McVerry is as the opposition found him extremely hard to deal with.

Kicked three crucial scores as the St Michael’s club came close to causing an upset, but it just wasn’t to be.
