Vote for the six forwards you think deserves a spot on the 2022 The Sideline Eye Senior Team of the Year!
CIAN MCCONVILLE (CROSSMAGLEN)
An outstanding display in the decider topped what was an incredible championship campaign for Cian McConville.
He was the championship top scorer with 1-19 in four games, with his goal coming in the semi-final against Maghery.
STEFAN FORKER (MAGHERY)
Has been one of the standout performers for Maghery over the past number of years and 2022 was no different.
Like the rest of the team, it wasn’t Forker’s night against Cross, but he was superb in their wins over Harps and Ballymacnab.
NIALL MAGENNIS (KILLEAVY)
Scored goals against both Madden and Clan na Gael as Killeavy reached the semi-final of the senior championship.
Magennis didn’t have a good game against Granemore but ended the year as Killeavy’s top scorer with 2-3.
JAMIE CLARKE (CROSSMAGLEN)
Clarke didn’t enjoy a good final but really impressed in his first season back in the black and amber since 2017.
He gave Dromintee plenty of headaches and was in unbelievable form as Cross saw off Maghery in the last four.
RYAN RAFFERTY (GRANEMORE)
Rafferty saved his best performance of the year for the showpiece and was Granemore’s most dangerous forward on the day.
The nippy corner forward also hit the all-important three-pointer in the first round as Granemore edged past Pearse Og.
JACK MCARDLE (DROMINTEE)
The Dromintee youngster had a fantastic year for the south Armagh men and chipped in with a few scores as they defeated Sarsfields.
His late brace of points in the quarter final dragged Crossmaglen to extra time, but the Rangers proved too strong.
RONAN FITZPATRICK (CROSSMAGLEN)
A coming-of-age season for Fitzpatrick, who was one of the outstanding players of the entire championship.
Peaked in the semi-final win over Maghery and topped that display was a super goal near the end of the game.
KIERAN HUGHES (BALLYMACNAB)
Not the season Ballymacnab wanted, but Hughes tried his best to drag the Nab to the last four of the championship.
The Round Towers corner forward hit 0-4 all from play against Maghery, but it wasn’t enough in the end.
EOGHAN MCDONNELL (MULLAGHBAWN)
McDonnell spent the summer in America but returned with renewed focus and played some great stuff for Mullaghbawn.
Had a good game against Clann Eireann and never stopped against Granemore, although he couldn’t get his side over the line.
CALLUM CUMISKEY (CROSSMAGLEN)
Got his hands on another county title and Cumiskey gave a number of great displays at centre half forward.
Cumiskey pulled the strings for the Rangers and chipped in with 0-4 throughout the championship campaign.
JASON O’NEILL (GRANEMORE)
Was Granemore’s go-to forward throughout the championship and top scored for Niall McAleenan’s men.
O’Neill notched 0-16 across their four championship games and helped guide Granemore to their first ever senior decider.
CAOLAN FINNEGAN (CROSSMAGLEN)
His season will likely be best remembered for the two sensational goals he scored at the start and end of the championship.
His three-pointer against Silverbridge saw Cross over that challenge and he netted again in the final against Granemore.
SHEA HOEY (ST PATRICK’S)
Cullyhanna may have only featured in one championship game this season, but Shea Hoey was a standout performer.
He kicked 0-5 in their opening round defeat to Ballymacnab with an eye-catching individual display.
