PERFECT PLAYER….with Paul Ward (Derrygonnelly)


Declan Cassidy

He has always had the ability to know where the ball will be. This isn’t luck but pure intelligence. At 38 he won Fermanagh club player of year this year from centre half -back. He, knew when to sit and protect and when to push on and join attack- just an innate football brain.

Ryan Jones

Has been our club captain during an unprecedented period of success for our club. He has always led by example and is a natural born leader. He is demanding but demands as much if not more of himself and he has been a driver in the raising of standards at our club.

Barry Owens

Just naturally strong…he’s been like since I saw him about St Michael’s, incredible power and a superb althete. Only for injuries he would in my opinion have added to his two All-Stars. It was a privilege to play alongside him.

Kevin Cassidy

He won’t forgive me if I don’t say him. When I started with the Harps seniors, Keeves was 14 and I was 13. He was incredibly strong and blessed with a magic left foot, which was lucky cause he didn’t have a right at all. Many a game I watched him win on his own, for a good few years he was best forward in the county. It helped me a lot playing alongside him, watching and learning. I did have to take the free-taking off him though fairly quickly.

Eamon Maguire and Mark Little

Lucky to play alongside these lads for Fermanagh, their ability on the ball was amazing, and the ability to dummy, jinx at such speed was a joke at times. Two incredibly gifted and talented footballers who contributed so much to Fermanagh football.
