1 Tommy Wallace (Midleton): The Magpies’ net-minder delivered his signature performance against the Glen with a series of wonder saves. He was also terrific against Blackrock, collecting the Rearden’s Hurler of the Semi-finals award.
3 Colm Spillane (Imokilly): An All-Star nominee at inter-county level, Spillane carried that form back to the club scene. His trademark aerial prowess and strength in rucks made Imokilly very hard to breach.
5 Ciarán O’Brien (Imokilly): There are no shortage of big names in the Imokilly team but they have their share of unsung heroes as well. O’Brien certainly falls into that category, clearing a world of ball throughout the campaign.
7 Mark Coleman (UCC): As adept at mopping up in midfield as sweeping across the half-backs for the College, he was their best player in the semi-final loss to Imokilly. On song, he’s a pure joy to watch.
9 Mark O’Keeffe (Imokilly): In a team of stars, the Fr O’Neill’s club man still caught the eye with his energy, aggression and sharpshooting from deep. Brilliant against Bishopstown and UCC.
10 Luke O’Farrell (Midleton): Midleton’s best hurler this season, their captain was a unanimous choice here. He chipped in with his share of tasty scores to the tune of 1-9 from play but, more influentially, he covered every blade of grass, using his pace to link defence and attack and working tirelessly.
12 Daniel Kearney (Sarsfields): He might have been unlucky to miss out on an inter-county All-Star but not here. Kearney’s long-range shooting has improved dramatically, hitting 1-12 from play in three outings. He fought gallantly in the loss to UCC and was quality for Sars last season too.
14 Conor Lehane (Midleton): While the final might not have gone Midleton’s way, Lehane was electric in driving his team back to the big stage, amassing 2-37 overall. His best performance saw him land 1-6 from play to knock out the Glen in round four.
