Started the championship with a great showing against St Michael’s and continued that form throughout the campaign.

Fox worked extremely hard around the middle of the field and added plenty of pace to that sector for Derrynoose.

Lissummon’s go-to sharpshooter in the forward line, Matthews was a huge threat for opposition defences.

It was his two early goals against An Port Mor that secured Lissummon’s place in the showpiece and he was superb all year.

May have only played one game in the Junior Championship, but the young St Michael’s forward certainly caught the eye.

McClelland caused Derrynoose numerous headaches in their opening round clash and is one to watch for the future.

Picked up the Man of the Match award in the final and that topped off a memorable year for David McCreesh.

With Conor McNally confined to an impact sub role, McCreesh stepped up and led the line for Derrynoose.

Offered a real scoring outlet and assistance to Steven Matthews in the Lissummon full forward line this year.

O’Hagan had a great season for Seamus Loughran’s side and chipped in with 0-2 in the Junior final against Derrynoose.

The youngster had a great year in the forward line for Middletown and quiet often proved their main scoring outlet.

Sean Og McGuinness, like a lot of the Middletown side, juggled hurling and football commits and excelled in both codes this year.

Another one of the youngsters that helped drive Derrynoose to the double league and championship success.

Mone was fantastic at wing half forward and drove up and down the pitch constantly in every game. He also chipped in with a couple of scores as well.

Shea Trainor’s work rate in the half forward line saw him stand out for Lissummon as they made their way to the final.

His best performance came in the opening round against Killeavy II, and he also hit 0-1 in the decider.
