And the best of the rest

Anthony Stokes


Under the guidance of John Hughes, the enigmatic Dubliner has fallen back in love with the game and Hibernian followers are getting regular glimpses of his potential. Time is on the 21-year-old's side.

Jon Walters


While Roy Keane's charges have struggled, Walters has shone through adversity and earned the captain's armband. Used as a winger in by previous regimes, the physical Irish 'B' international has embraced a central striking role.

Alan Judge


The pint-sized winger is on loan with the Pilgrims for the second season in succession and is extremely popular at Argyle. Bustling with energy and no stranger to the scoresheet.

Leon Best


Injury checked his momentum in December, but prior to that the young striker was one of the outstanding players in the Championship.

Wes Hoolahan


The ex-Shelbourne man, pictured, is far too good for League One and has taunted opponents when on-song for the Canaries.

With the right manager and club, it is possible that the 27-year-old could still hit the big time.
