Clan Na Gael midfielder Shane McParland has been handed the club's player of the year award following a very successful season.

Also doubling as a full forward, the rangy former St Pat's Armagh player was highly instrumental for the Blues this season, particularly in the team's sterling performance against Crossmaglen in the early stages of the championship.

Shane was extremely accurate both from play and from set pieces.

Emerging talents of young stars Jack Lavery and Calum O'Neill were rewarded by the Francis Street club with joint minor player of the year awards, and Lennox Camara was voted underage player of the year.
