Ulster Football Championship Team of the Year 2023 Analysis
The O'Donovan Rossa net minder won the number 1 battle in the 2023 Ulster Senior Football Championship, crucially saving three penalties after extra-time in the Final - including one from his opposite number Ethan Rafferty to help clinch back to back Anglo Celt Cup triumphs for Derry.
Our 2023 MVP, Ethan Doherty is a pivotal cog in the Derry machine. Averaging 40 possessions per game with an incredible 97% retention rate, the Watty Graham's player does not give up possession easy and is a trusted ball carrier and important transition link. Outside of scoring 3 points from play, he assisted 1-10 (20% of Derry's total points for the Championship).
Slaughtneil's Mr Consistency achieved the top scorer accolade converting 2-21(10f)(1p) in the 2023 Ulster Championship (total shot accuracy 77%). His personal haul of 27 total points represents 40% of Derry's total points for the Championship.
