It’s time to vote for the players that you think deserve a place in the 2023 The Sideline Eye Hurling Team of the Year.
Four players have been nominated for the goalkeeper position. Vote for the goalkeeper you think deserves a place on the team.
The voting polls will close at midnight on Sunday and the team will be announced next Monday.
Caolan McCann (Sean Treacy’s)
McCann earned the number one spot on the first ever Armagh Club Hurling Team of the Year last season.
He was again an integral part of the Sean Treacy’s side as they reached the Junior Championship decider once again this season.
They came up short this year however as Killeavy proved too strong in the decider, winning by eight points.
Conor McAnallen (Keady Lamh Dhearg)
McAnallen kept two clean sheets in the championship series (six games) as Keady made their way to the Senior final.
They were beaten by Middletown on the day by eight, but McAnallen gave a few notable performances throughout the campaign.
The Keady netminder helped his side finish second in the group stages (on score difference) and make the decider.
Damien Begley (Killeavy)
Begley perhaps saved his best performance of all for the Junior Championship final against Sean Treacy’s.
The Killeavy goalkeeper pulled off a stunning save, denying the Lurgan men a goal from the penalty spot.
Begley’s performances between the sticks helped Killeavy earn championship gold for the first time in ten years.
Fintan Woods (Middletown)
Woods has established himself as the number one goalkeeper in Armagh and had another fine year for Middletown.
Woods conceded just four goals throughout the entire championship campaign, where Middletown played six games.
He kept a clean sheet in the final as Middletown completed a historic five in a row of Senior Championship titles.
