Round 7 of the Allianz football leagues didn't disappointment with talking points aplenty. Check out our team of the week...

1. Niall Morgan (Tyrone)

Morgan kept a clean sheet and scored a free at the opposite end of the field as the Red Hands downed Kerry for the first time in eight years.

2. Michael Fitzsimons (Dublin)

A rare defeat for the Dubs in Croke Park yesterday but no finger of blame can be pointed in Fitzsimons' direction.

3. Drew Wylie (Monaghan)

Wylie's Croke Park efforts were rewarded with the 'man-of-the-match' accolade.



4. Ross Donovan (Sligo)

Donovan and the Yeats County sent Derry packing from Division 3 thanks to their fully deserved 3-11 to 2-12 success.

5. Frank Burns (Tyrone)

Burns got through a lot of good work in the 1-16 to 0-14 victory over the Kingdom.



6. Vinny Corey (Monaghan)

The experienced defender roamed forward to net a 13th minute goal for Malachy O'Rourke's side.

7. Ultan Harney (Roscommon)

Making his first competitive start of the season after injury, Harney and the Rossies got the better of Cork by 0-17 to 1-11.

8. John O'Loughlin (Laois)

The hard-working midfielder was one of the stars as the O'Moore County overcame neighbours Carlow to secure promotion. 

9. Michael Murphy (Donegal)

Donegal were denied at the death by Mayo and it will be Division 2 football for Murphy & Co in 2019.



10. Dara McVeety (Cavan)

The Breffni County captain has been a standout performer throughout their successful Division 2 campaign. 

11. Aidan O'Shea (Mayo)

The Breaffy powerhouse played an influential part as Stephen Rochford's men got a result that maintains their Division 1 status.

12. Kevin McLoughlin (Mayo)

McLoughlin's superb 4th minute stoppage time point broke Donegal hearts.

13. Cillian O'Sullivan (Meath)

O'Sullivan was outstanding against Down and Royal supporters will be hoping for more of the same when they make the short trip to Drogheda next weekend.



14. Kieran Hughes (Monaghan)

Hughes asked plenty of questions of the Dublin defence and Monaghan will enter the Ulster SFC in a confident frame of mind.

15. Seamus Quigley (Fermanagh)

Quigley's controversial injury-time free booked a return to Division 2 for the Ernsiders at Longford's expense.
