Fermanagh and Roslea attacker Sean Quigley is on the short list for the Ulster GAA Writers’ Association’s Male Footballer of the Year award for 2015.
Quigley has been nominated alongside Matthew Donnelly (Tyrone) and Conor McManus (Monaghan) for the coveted award which has been won in recent times by Neil McGee (2014), Sean Cavanagh (2013) and Colm McFadden (2012).
He was instrumental in a hugely successful season for Pete McGrath’s charges as they won promotion from Division 3 and made the last 8 of the All Ireland race.
Quigley was to shoot 4-49 in just 8 NFL games while in the Championship he came 2nd in the top scoring charts by posting a staggering 2-36 which only seen him lose in the scoring chart by 1 point to Mayo’s Cillian O’Connor.
Quigley who was the Player of the Month for January is as modest as ever, “Yes I am looking forward to November 13th in what again should be a great night. Personally for myself it was a great season but it was a fantastic one for Fermanagh footballers in general. We are looking forward to try and push on in Division 2 in 2016 and we fully believe we have the squad capable of promotion and Ulster Championship success.”
Quigley will be accompanied on the night with family members from Roslea Shamrocks and his girlfriend Aoife Scott.
The talented Roslea attacker also finished top scorer in this year’s Fermanagh Club Championship with a personal tally of 2-24 in 4 games that seen his side reach the County Final before losing to Derrygonnelly Harps.
Donnelly and McManus are two hugely effective footballers but with the high scoring totals that the ever-present Quigley hit this year for the Erne County it is very much hoped he can add the Ulster GAA writer’s award to a glowing mantel piece.
The Quinn Building Products Ulster GAA Writers Association Annual Awards Banquet will be held at the Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran, on Friday, November 13.
Tickets for the event can be purchased via The Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran on 00353 719 841204.
Good luck Sean, the whole of Fermanagh wish you well.
