Niall McKeown has been chosen to captain our senior team this year and takes over the reins from Keith Daly. I caught up with Niall at training this evening and he stated “it was a great privilege to be appointed captain of the team and I will do my best to lead the team this year.”
There are always natural leaders within a team and Niall is now a regular feature on our senior team and has shown on many occasions his talent and all-round ability. He is a young man who has a great work ethic and he certainly leads by example on the field and brings a great attitude to the squad. He has wonderful leadership qualities and continues the McKeown tradition of proudly wearing the ‘Nr. 3’ jersey and just like his father, Gerry; he shares the same qualities “Thou Shall Not Pass.”
On behalf of the management committee and indeed all our supporters I would like to wish Niall the very best of luck during his captaincy and hopefully he will inspire his team-mates to achieve something very special in 2014.
