Last night at the MDL Annual awards ceremony Trim Celtic Seniors had the honour of having 2 players nominated for the most prestigious award of “Overall Player of the Year”. Barry O’Callaghan and Derek Donohoe were the nominees. Trim Celtic were the only club in the MDL to have 2 players nominated.
Derek Donohoe was the proud recipient of the award and was presented with a magnificent trophy by FAI Chief Executive John Delaney. It was a very proud night for Trim Celtic to have two players nominated and to see Derek Donohoe receiving the award was magnificent. Once again Derek has shown, and has been recognised, as the best footballer in the MDL. This year alone Derek scored 21 goals in 21 games. He scored 3 hat-tricks, the first came in his first game of the season within 35mins, and he scored 4 goals in 2 games. On the night Derek and Barry were joined by Brian McCreary, Kevin Elliott, John Kelly, David Conway and Mark Scanlon.
On behalf of the first team management we wish to congratulate both players but particularly Derek on his wonderful achievement. Derek and Barry are Trim Celtic true and true and they should serve as an inspiration to all levels within the club.
