THE MAGNIFICENT 7….DONEGAL GAA STARS NAMED IN TOP 50

first_imgSEVEN Donegal players were today named in the top 50 players of the year.The Irish Independent list (in no particular order) features stars who will face each other in the County Final tomorrow.Without further ado….here the pick of Colm Keys: 3 Karl Lacey (Donegal) Whether it was destructive man marking jobs or being the main catalyst for turning defence into attack for Donegal, Lacey delivered. He was omnipresent at the heart of Donegal’s defensive effort.10 Michael Murphy (Donegal) When he played an orthodox full-forward role in the Ulster final Donegal got the most out of him. Led the comeback up front against Kildare after injury ruled him out from the start.13 Neil McGee (Donegal) Much of Donegal’s progress was predicated on firm defence and McGee was a cornerstone from the very first afternoon of the championship in Ballybofey.21 Kevin Cassidy (Donegal) A couple of inspirational scores against Tyrone in Ulster and then that match-winner in extra-time against Kildare. Well worth coming out of retirement for. 30 Colm McFadden (Donegal)The lone forward against Dublin, he didn’t let the isolation get to him. Contributed good scores against Tyrone and Derry in Ulster.41 Frank McGlynn (Donegal) Was assured in everything he did and was one of Donegal’s most miserly man markers.50 Ryan Bradley (Donegal) Delivered some of Donegal’s most important scores and worked tirelessly for the cause from half-forward.See the full list here: http://www.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-football/top-50-footballers-2011-2893144.htmlTHE MAGNIFICENT 7….DONEGAL GAA STARS NAMED IN TOP 50 was last modified: October 1st, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal GAAlast_img
