Introducing the U-15 players for the Division 2 League Final

Under 15 Player Profiles

Adam O’Mara – A strong and speedy athlete who possesses an ability to make plenty of yards with ball in hand. Also acts as an able target man in the full forward line with the ability to win his own ball.

Alan Mulvany – One of four U-15 players with a Minor Championship medal from this year, Mulvany is deadly accurate and is well able to cover plenty of ground from his midfield berth. His link play is second to none and will be key on Friday night.

Brian Boyd – Navan O’Mahonys’ forwards will have to be on top form to get by the Yellow Furze sides’ net minder who is an excellent shot stopper and is well able to find his man from his kicking tee.

Ciaran Lynch – Two months ago Lynch was not playing the game. His rapid progress is shown by the fact that he is now starting at corner back as he is an excellent man marker and strong tackler.

Christian McAuley – McAuley is an aggressive defender who will always play on the edge, and is well equipped to deal with any opposing physical presence.

Cathal Hickey – An excellent reader of the game is Hickey, who is more often than not out in front of his man. Can often be seen raiding forward to good effect from wing back.

Cillian Gormley – Gormley is a hard working wing forward who normally chips in with a few scores during matches. He has a high fitness level thanks to his Winter Cross Country excursions.

Ciaran Mongey – Unfortunately will miss out due to injury, but Mongey is blessed with a turn of pace, and was playing well at full back in the earlier rounds until his injury and is a hard act to follow.

Daire Finnegan – Another member of the victorious Minor squad, Finnegan will pluck many a ball from the Skryne sky on Friday night and will set up many Seneschalstown attacks with his powerful running.

Dylan Keating – Another key component of the Minor team, Keating is absolutely lethal in front of goal and has racked up high scores during the campaign. He undoubtedly will cause ‘The Hoops’ defence more than a few problems with his ball winning ability.

Fionn Hall – Showed great character to come back from a serious injury earlier in the year, and played a key part when called upon in the semi-final. If given the chance on Friday, he will do likewise. Broke O’Mahonys hearts in the 2014 U-14 semi-final with three outstanding goal line clearances.

Jason Lyons – An absolute powerhouse on the edge of the square with a keen eye for goal, but also well able to lay the ball off to a teammate when they are in a better position.

James Commons – Rapidly quick corner forward and has used this to good effect when he given an opportunity. Commons was excellent in the final round group game against St. Colmcilles.

Jamie Kirwan – Versatile would certainly be one word used to describe Kirwan, who has operated in many different lines for both the U14’s and U15’s throughout 2015. For now though, he has found a home in the half back line.

Joseph Moore – Moore is a very physical player and won’t pull out of any challenges and without doubt made the most telling tackle of the semi-final. He is also well able to win his own ball and is willing to any job asked to do of him for the best of the team.

Liam Maguire – Has made the step up from U13 to make some important appearances, most notably against Walterstown in the second round when producing some excellent blocks and tackles.

Padraig Finnegan – Started the campaign in goals but moved outfield later on. Finnegan has operated in both defence and attack, showing he can score by netting Seneschalstown’s only goal in the victory over St. Colmcilles.

Ross Mullen – A nippy and intelligent forward Mullen operates anywhere in the forward line and when presented with opportunities in front of the posts he will finish with unerring accuracy.

Sean Carey – Has made the number six jersey his own after putting a number of stellar performances. Another aspect of his play, is his ability to distribute the ball from a deep position. Carey was also a contributor to the Minor Championship success last month.

Sean Commons – An effective target man, Commons is well able to field a high ball and score. He offers the option of being used at full forward and at centre forward thanks to his size.

Simon Rooney - Also unable to play due to an unfortunate shoulder injury, Rooney displayed his shooting ability by notching three excellent points in the opening round before continuing his fine form at centre forward before the aforementioned injury.
