Team of the Season 2017/18

Team of the Season
Once again, this year we had a huge response to the request for nominations for the annual team of the season.
We invited all the clubs in the League’s to submit nominations from their own teams along with any opposition players they would like to see recognised.
It’s always important to remember that the results are not scientific, and no doubt deserving players will have slipped through the net.
However the chosen players are those who drew most support from the nominees and fully deserve the recognition.
The final make-up will no doubt cause much disagreement but such is the case with opinions.
As usual there were many close calls, in some cases one vote could have separated seven or eight players. In many cases we were forced to adjust the “formation” of a team to fit in the most popular selections. In particular centre halves seemed to outgun their full backs forcing a few of the Divisions into a 3-5-2 formation.
In the top flight Kieran O’Connell was the only player to break the Janesboro/Pike monopoly. The Regional midfielder always polls well and his 20 goals from midfield this season saw him force his way in. A number of players missed by the narrowest margins most notably Rob Shier, who had the misfortune to face opposition in two of the best keepers in the country and Shane Walsh whose unproductive transfer to Janesboro in midseason knocked him out of the reckoning.
The O’Donovan Brothers, Wayne and Eddie, lost out to the popularity of Centre Defenders while others that can feel unlucky were Aidan Hurley, Niall Hanley, Jason Hughes, Pat O’Callaghan and Darragh Rainsford.
In some of the lower Divisions players who transferred from one Division to another split their appeal and fell between the cracks while others, despite their attraction, did not play enough of the season to feature.
Regardless, well done to all who made the cut.
Please forgive any mistakes that are sure to occur and once again a big thank you to everyone who went to the bother of submitting an entry.
The Junior Soccer awards will be held in the McGettigans Pub on Wednesday May 23rd at 8.00pm. It is open to all and the “Player of the year” for each Division will selected from the players listed in the Team of the Season for each of the Divisions so it’s hoped all can attend.
Unfortunately, as there will be alcohol served on the night, the event is closed to Under 17 and Youth players. The Youth and U17 winners will be notified in due course.
