Today we look at St. Mary’s Aghagallon through the eyes of a former player who wishes to remain anonymous. Our man has went for former players for most of his selection but has come up with a strong looking lineout. Not everyone will agree with his selection. It’s just one man’s opinion.
Just a bit of fun!
Aghagallon ‘Best 15’ footballers
Comment: Aghagallon best 15 please do not put my name to this. Please keep it anonymous thank you.
1 Peter Bunting (George)
Played in goals for the club from U12 until he was 40+ good kick out and shot-stopper and never shut his mouth talking to the players in front of him
2 Gregory Walsh (pretty G)
Great reader of the game was the master of the diving foot block always gave 100%
3 John McStravick (Willie)
Developed from an average forward to one of the best full backs in the county
4 Eugene Lavery (boob)
The man could run for ever and never got tired. Very light on his feet and never gave up
5 Adrian Hannon (H)
The fittest man I ever seen. He was a rolls Royce of a footballer for Aghagallon and like George was there for a lifetime
6 Oliver McStravick (Ollie)
Could read the game like a newspaper nipped in got the ball and away in a flash.
7 Peter Tallon (Foxy)
NEVER got into trouble with the ball in his hands could play anywhere he was asked
8 David McAlernon (Davy mc)
If there’s a better all-round footballer than Davy he’s some footballer. Davy had everything and gave everything for his club.
9 Patsy McLarnon
Listening to the old folk he was the best midfielder in Antrim on his game. Came from Aldergove to Aghagallon to finish his career and left a great impression.
10 Ronan Magee (Ninch)
Ninch was worth at least 5pts a game, a strong fast and great free taker.
11 Adam loughran
Adam has great potential and if he keeps developing the way he has he will have a fantastic career for Aghagallon and Antrim
12 Jarlath McStravick (Yardley)
On his day was un-markable. Great in the tackle and always was a goal or 2 in him
13 Cairan Lavery
Played in Aghagallon best forward line ever, fast, cute, with a great eye for a score.
14 Damien McStravick (DD)
The Complete package with a deadly eye for goal. Who could forget his performance for Antrim minors in Ballybofey?
15 Sean Lavery (squrit)
What a speed merchant this boy was and the hardest shot in the club. He scored for fun.
Great players of note from our great club:
This is only my opinion! We had great players and everyone who played and kept the GAA alive in Aghagallon in in their own right are Aghagallon legends
