Nephew of the famous jockey AP McCoy, Cargin's Pat Shivers scored a stunning point in the Antrim County final

Level in added extra time, Cargin needed someone to step up and Pat Shivers delivered. Playing in dreadful conditions, Shivers collected the ball around the opposing 20 metre line. He then slips whilst trying to escape his marker but recovers remarkably to score with his left boot. His point was the first of three in a row from Cargin as they pulled away from Aghagallon. Cargin ended up winning the match with a score line of 1-18 to 3-9.

After the match, Moneyglass's McCoy praised his nephew for his point and joked that he definitely gets his football skills from his mother, his sister Roisin, aka the McCoy side of the family.

Red Card Overturned

The corner forward had a nervous wait to see if he could play in the county final. He was unfairly dismissed in the semifinal against Dunsilly. However, video footage emerged that showed that the 21-year-old did nothing wrong and his red card was overturned.

The talented gaelic footballer has been kicking stunning points for years. In fact, his point in the county final wasn't the first to be praised by his famous uncle. Back in 2019, he kicked a fantastic point from the sideline of the 45.

Shivers is currently involved in the Antrim football team. The county will be pushing for promotion out of Division 3 next year under new manager Andy McEntee. With the new Tailteann cup format, the team can reasonably hope to play more than their usual 2 championship games.
