Intermediate Team of the Year – Forwards

Colm Watters (Culloville)

Watters may have only played one full game for the Blues, but his influence was huge throughout the championship.

Began the campaign with a bang, scoring 2-3 in their first-round win over Shane O’Neill’s but missed the next game through injury.

He was sprung from the bench against Sarsfields and Culloville and rattled off 0-10 across the two games.

Eoin Woods (Carrickcruppen)

Deservingly picked up the Man of the Match award in the county final after kicking four brilliant points.

Also turned on the style in the first half against Tullysaran, hitting 0-3 and struck the game winning goal against Wolfe Tones.

The youngster was key to Carrickcruppen’s plans this season and made a huge impact in every game.

Colin Stevenson (Sarsfields)

Stevenson is a tricky inside forward and the accurate left footer had tortured many corner backs down through the years.

He played his part in getting the Division 2A league champions to the last four and performer well against Culloville.

He was joint-top scorer that day with all three of his scores coming from play and also hit a hattrick of points against Whitecross.

Dara Quinn (Culloville)

At just 18-years of age, Quinn often led the half forward line for Culloville and excelled in doing so.

Top scored with 1-2 in his sides one-point win over St Paul’s and caused the Lurgan men all kinds of headaches.

Chipped in with 0-3 in the semi-final as he ended his maiden season on the senior team with 1-7 in the championship.

Lorcan McParland (Carrickcruppen)

Another member of the youthful side Carrickcruppen, McParland enjoyed a hugely successful 2021.

His work rate was off the charts as he covered every blade of grass in each and every game Cruppen played.

The centre half forward had an excellent final and often got back to help out his defensive while breaking forward brilliantly as well.

Mark McKeever (Tullysaran)

Played a few different roles for Tullysaran as they made their way to the last four of the championship.

Started at midfield in their first-round win over Tir na nOg and moved into his more familiar attacking position for the remainder of the campaign.

Top scored with 0-4 in his sides quarter final victory over Forkhill and ended the season with 0-7 in three games.

Ryan Garvey (Culloville)

Helped kickstart a memorable championship run for Culloville with an excellent performance against Shane O’Neill’s.

Garvey continued that form for the remainder of the championship, although a hamstring injury did influence his impact.

Kicked 0-6 in the championship, the most important coming in the quarter final against St Paul’s when his excellent score helped turn the tide for the Blues.

Stephen Loughran (Carrickcruppen)

Notched a personally tally of 0-2 in all four of Carrickcruppen’s championship outings against Collegeland, Wolfe Tones, Tullysaran and Culloville.

The Cruppen captain had a major influence in getting his side to the showpiece and featured as a target man for most of the campaign.

Won the penalty that ultimately won the game in the semi-final against Tullysaran and was a prominent figure all season.

Aidan Finnegan (Whitecross)

Played all over the park for Whitecross as they crashed out of the championship at the quarter final stages.

Finnegan made The Sideline Eye Team of the Week when he starred in his sides first round victory over Ballyhegan.

He finished that game with 1-5 to his name and hit a further three points in their last eight defeat to Sarsfields.

Cathal Hatzer (Culloville)

Stepped up to the plate when Colm Watters was out injured and enjoyed a brilliant championship run.

The highlight being his performance against Sarsfields in the semi-final when he top scored with 0-5 all from play.

Hatzer was on form all throughout the campaign and his link up play with Niall Rowland was fantastic to watch.

Tiernan Kelly (Carrickcruppen)

Like the rest of his teammates, Kelly’s work rate throughout the championship was seriously impressive.

Has an eye for goal as well of course and he netted the all-important penalty against Tullysaran in the semi-final.

Also raised the only green flag of the county final and Kelly finished the season with a personal haul of 2-4.
