Star of the Week
THIS week's Star of the Week is St Kevin's CC captain Daniel Matthews, whose opening goal in last week's FAI Schools John Murphy Cup Leinster Boys final set up a fairytale day for the player and his school.
Defender Matthews opened the scoring in last Friday's 5-0 victory over St Kilians DSD just 12 months after missing last year's final heartbreak with a dislocated knee. The 17-year-old sixth-year student picked up the injury in a schools league game, coincidentally against Greenhills College who his side eventually lost to in the Senior 'B' showpiece.
Matthews has come back stronger than ever, with his opening goal in the quarter-final proving crucial, and it was fitting he should finally lift the trophy for his school.
