Termon footballer Jack Alcorn is this week’s Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub Sports Person of the Week, in association with O’Reilly’s.
Alcorn polled 343 votes, some 33 per cent of the total 1,041 votes this week.
Alcorn staved off competition from Finn Valley AC’s Sommer Lecky, who obtained 240 votes, and St Mary’s, Convoy footballer Jason McDaid, who bagged 221 votes.
Alcorn was the hero of the hour for Termon in last Friday’s Under-16 Championship final win over Gaoth Dobhair in Milford.
Alcorn levelled the game with a brilliant late point, but there was still time for him to conjure up the winner. And Alcorn, with extra time looming, kicked the match-winner to seal a historic win for the Burn Road club.
Bonagee United’s Siobhan Sweeney had 178 votes, with Oisin Kelly of Cranford AC and Finn Harps U19s’ Jamie Browne also nominated.
Each weekly award winner will receive a kitbag, a jersey and a half-zip, supplied by O’Reilly’s.
The award winner will be chosen via a public vote from a shortlist selected by our panel.
O’Reilly’s sportswear was founded in 2017 by well-known Twin Towns sporting brothers Steven and Martin O’Reilly.
