The De La Salle High School’s Phelim Savage has been named as the Danske Bank Player of the Month.
De La Salle High School student Phelim Savage picked up the Danske Bank hurling Player of the Month award for October. The Ballycran hurler won the award following his outstanding performance during An Dún’s Mageean Cup campaign.
The new recognition awards were announced last week by Ulster Schools’ GAA sponsor, Danske Bank, and are designed to recognise players from all age groups and across all tiers, with a hurler and footballer recognised each month until 31 March 2019.
Nominations for the Danske Bank Ulster Schools’ GAA Player of the Month are put forward by the coaches from the player’s opposing team. All nominations are then reviewed by a panel from Ulster Schools’ GAA and Danske Bank, who award a monthly winner in each code.
The six hurling and six football award winners will go through to the Danske Bank Player of the Year awards, with the final winners announced at the All Stars Banquet on 12 April 2019.
Michael Conroy from St. Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh received the Danske Bank Football Player of the Month for October following an impressive start to the new Danske Bank MacRory Cup season.
