Dublin and Mayo Get Seven Spots Each In The Sunday Game Football Team Of The Year

Dublin and Mayo Get Seven Spots Each In The Sunday Game Football Team Of The Year
By Daniel Kelly

All-Ireland finalists Dublin and Mayo make up all but one of the spots in The Sunday Game's Team of the Year.

In a season, where both sides were the dominant teams of the summer, only Kerry's Paul Geaney made the cut from outside the finalists.

Both sides contributed seven players to the team, with Mayo supplying two of the three players in the half-backs and half-forwards.

Goalkeeper: Stephen Cluxton (Dublin)

Full-backs: Mick Fitzsimons (Dublin), Cian O'Sullivan (Dublin), Keith Higgins (Mayo)

Half-backs: Colm Boyle (Mayo), Chris Barrett (Mayo), Jack McCaffrey (Dublin)

Midfielders: Tom Parsons (Mayo), James McCarthy (Dublin)

Half-forwards: Kevin McLoughlin (Mayo), Aidan O'Shea (Mayo), Con O'Callaghan (Dublin)

Full-forwards: Paul Mannion (Dublin), Paul Geaney (Kerry), Andy Moran (Mayo)

Despite scoring the winning point in the All-Ireland final, there was no place in the team for Dublin's Dean Rock. Last year's Footballer of the Year Lee Keegan also wasn't included

Speaking after the team was named, Roscommon manager Kevin McStay said Mayo goalkeeper David Clarke was unlucky not to be named, while Joe Brolly said Rock should have made the cut.

Dublin's James McCarthy and Mayo's Andy Moran were both seen as the two main contenders for the Footballer of the Year.
