Congratulations to Cootehill Celtic’s Joshua Hayes who was awarded Player of the Year by UCD GAA at their Awards night last month.
The Celts’ Senior team Captain for 2012 played corner back in the Dublin College’s O’Byrne Cup games as well as the premier third level competition, the Sigerson Cup.
UCD enjoyed a four point win over Laois in the first round of the O’Byrne Cup but came undone against All-Ireland Champions Dublin in Round 2. While UCD defeated Athlone IT comfortably before being beaten by eventual finalists NUI Maynooth at the Quarter Final stage.
Josh’s performances for UCD, in particular versus Dublin in the O’Byrne Cup, earned him a much deserved call-up to the Cavan Senior squad by then manager Val Andrews.
Josh caught the headlines in January of last year with UCD as he scored a last minute goal to beat Meath in what was Banty McEneaney’s first game in charge of the Royals.
Well done again to Josh and best of luck to himself, his clubman John McCutcheon and the rest of the Cavan squad as they take on 2011 Ulster Champions Donegal in the first round of the Ulster Championship this Sunday in Kingspan Breffni Park at 3.30pm
