St Vincent’s sign-off in style as champions

By Mindo - 20th Jun 2018 | 73 views

This season’s achievement is the result of a huge squad effort. End-of-season awards, voted on by all team members, recognise those who made special contributions over the course of the campaign:

<strong><em>Player of the Season</em></strong>: <strong>Peter Kelly</strong>. The Greystones GP had a fantastic season in midfield, combining athleticism with an uncanny ability to read the game to have an impact at both ends of the pitch.

<strong><em>Young Player of the Season:</em></strong> <strong>Fionn Nally</strong>. The St Vincent’s Hospital intern posed a constant threat to opposing defences, blending pace, trickery and intelligent link-play to score eight goals and assist countless others.

<strong><em>Top Goal-scorer</em></strong>: <strong>Aidan McGrath</strong>. The Kildare town GP registrar had a season to remember, scoring 21 goals in 20 games, and taking over as the club’s record goal-scorer from Ronan Murray. Aidan will look to continue his amazing form in front of goal as he captains the Irish team in the upcoming World Medical Football Championships.
