FAI Amateur nominees revealed

SKIPPER James Walsh of St Michael's Tipperary, Chris Barbour of Mountview United and Davy O'Sullivan of Wicklow Rovers are the three '3' FAI nominees for the Amateur Player of the Year award, scheduled to be held later this month.

The trio were central figures as manager Gerry Smith's side, against the odds, reached the UEFA Regions final in Braga, northern Portugal last summer only to be beaten 2-1 by the hosts with a last minute goal in the final.

Central defender Walsh became the most capped Regions Cup player to date during the finals while central midfielder Barbour was one of the stand-out players in the tournament and late selection O'Sullivan justified his inclusion with two superbly taken goals in the elite finals.
