A little bit of recognition for players who put in big performances for our teams. The time and effort put in by all those who put on a Wicklow jersey and take to the field to represent the Garden County is phenomenal and here we will try to highlight a few of those players.
You might agree or disagree with our selections as its usually hard to single out one player but by all means let us know who you thought deserved a mention.
Wicklow vs Tyrone:
John Henderson (Bray Emmets)
John Henderson gets our nod after an excellent performance where he was simply everywhere in our hurlers win over Tyrone. Diarmuid Masterson, Andy Kavanagh, Padraig Doran and a few other were pushing him close but we went with John for an excellent performance.
Wicklow vs Limerick:
Ellen Griffin (St Pats)
Ellen Griffin gets our vote for the ladies game with Limerick and a few eyebrows would be raised awarding a goalkeeper this award in a defeat that 3 goals were shipped, but in only her second game in her debut season and she was commanding in the air, intercepted a certain Limerick goal and her distribution was impressive in only her second start for the county senior team and she could not be faulted for any of the goals and she could nail down the number 1 jersey for many years to come.
