Armagh’s Man of the Match vs Antrim

Who was Armagh’s Man of the Match in their nine-point victory over Antrim in the first round of the Ulster Championship?

20 players saw game time for Kieran McGeeney’s side as they overcame Andy McEntee’s side with ease.

Ethan Rafferty

Retained 86% of his kickouts, kicked a point from the dead ball and defended his goal mouth well.

James Morgan

Showed great pace to earn a turnover that led to Turbitt’s first score. A decent outing for his first appearance of the season.

Aaron McKay

Picked up Antrim danger man Ruairi McCann and did well. Conceded just one point, Antrim’s first of the day.

Aidan Forker

Always a steady presence in the Armagh defence, Forker had another good outing. Held Pat Shivers to 0-1.

Ciaran Mackin

Knocked over a superb score in the first half, splitting the posts with the outside of the boot.

Greg McCabe

The Shane O’Neill’s man often played as an extra body in the Armagh defence to good effect.

Barry McCambridge

Ben Crealey

Crealey made his first appearance of the 2023 season and was a great addition to the Armagh midfield.

Shane McPartlan

The Clan na Gael man had a brilliant debut, finishing the game as Armagh’s second highest scorer with 0-4 from play.

Stefan Campbell

Set up his clubmate Shane McPartlan’s first score and chipped in with a first half point himself.

Rory Grugan

Hit three points throughout the game and could have had a goal near the end, but was in the square.

Jason Duffy

Put in a lot of hard yeads and saw plenty of possession. But Duffy will be disappointed he didn’t get on the scoresheet.
