Fifty nominees shortlisted for Tyrone All-Star awards

November 14, 2006
A total of fifty players will be in the running for Tyrone GAA All-Star awards at the third annual Teamtalk Magazine Gala Banquet in the Great Northern Hotel in Bundoran on Friday 8th December. Following weeks of voting, the list of contenders for places on the 2006 All-Star club football team has been whittled down to fifty names representing 22 different clubs. The players shortlisted will be present at the banquet for the announcement of the 2006 Tyrone All-Star team as well as the senior, intermediate and junior footballer of the year award winners. A selection of the nominees will also be in contention for the 'young club footballer of the year' and 'young achiever of the year' awards. County champions Errigal Ciaran have seven players included on the shortlist for the All-Star team, while county finalists Carrickmore and newly crowned league champions Dromore each have five nominees. Senior championship semi-finalists Coalisland and league runners-up Donaghmore both have three representatives on the nominees list, as do intermediate champions Stewartstown. Ardboe, Omagh, Strabane and five clubs who earned promotion in 2006 - Galbally, Killeeshil, Derrylaughan, Greencastle and Brocagh - all have two names in contention for All-Star awards. And a further eight clubs have one player in the running for an award. The list of fifty nominees includes five players who won an All-Star award for the first time last year - Ciaran McAleer, Cormac McGinley, Paul Quinn, Des Tracey and Justin McMahon - and three players who were members of the inaugural team two years ago, namely Ronan McGarrity, Gabriel McCallan and Fabian O'Neill. Carrickmore goalkeeper Plunkett McCallan has actually made the team in each of the last two years and is in contention for a third successive All-Star award. The latest list of All-Star nominees has been compiled from the huge number of votes submitted by clubs, journalists and the general public over the last six weeks. Another round of voting for both the team and individual awards is now underway and the final deadline is Friday 1st December.
