With four rounds done and dusted, things are beginning to get interesting across all four divisions of the Allianz football leagues...

1. Rory Beggan (Monaghan)

The Farney County netminder kept a clean sheet and converted three long range frees in their minimum margin victory over Tyrone.

2. Jonny Cooper (Dublin)

Cooper and his defensive team-mates restricted Mayo to five points from play in Castlebar on Saturday evening.

3. Michael McWeeney (Leitrim)

Keith Beirne grabbed the headlines with 2-8 in Leitrim's first win of the campaign which came at Limerick's expense while McWeeney was a solid presence in defence.

4. Ryan Wylie (Monaghan)

Replaced the suspended Thomas Kerr in the Monaghan back line and didn't put a foot wrong against the Red Hand County.

5. Ryan McHugh (Donegal)

Scored the all-important goal as Donegal secured their first win of the campaign at the expense of 14-man Kildare and also chipped in with two points for good measure.

6. Gregory McCabe (Armagh)

The Orchard County registered a routine win over Offaly and their centre-back got them up and running with an early goal.

7. Sean Kelly (Galway)

It was a day to remember for the Tribesmen in Tralee and they will be looking to continue their run of good form when they play host to Monaghan this Sunday.

8. Killian Clarke (Cavan)

Midfielder Clarke put in an impressive shift as the Breffni County lowered Cork's colours in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

9. Eoin Donnelly (Fermanagh)

The Ernesiders have made an impressive start to Division 3 and their round 4 win over Derry underlined their promotion credentials.

10. Dara McVeety (Cavan)

"He's the leader of the football team, he's just an outstanding example" - the Cavan captain came in for high praise from his manager Mattie McGleenan.

11. Fintan Kelly (Monaghan)

Malachy O'Rourke's decision to deploy Kelly further up the field proved to be an inspired one as he kicked three points against Tyrone.

12. Eamonn Brannigan (Galway)

Galway enjoyed a first victory over Kerry in 15 years and lively half-forward Brannigan contributed 1-3 to his team's final tally.

13. Eoin Cleary (Clare)

Cleary's accuracy from placed balls was central to Clare's two point Division 2 victory over Down in Newry.

14. Dean Rock (Dublin)

The Ballymun Kickhams ace top scored for the All-Ireland champions with six points against Mayo in MacHale Park.

15. Conor Sweeney (Tipperary)

The Meath defence struggled to cope with the Premier County corner-forward who finished with nine points (four from play) to his name.
