The inspirational full-back saw off team-mate Podge Collins and Tipperary's Jason Forde to scoop the award.

The Tulla man was a central figure in the Banner young guns' march to success, picking up two man-of-the-match gongs.

Kildare's Niall Kenny was presented with the award for best player in the 'B' competition.
