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 showed 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 shown wonderful leadership qualities in recent years 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.
