GALWAY UNITED: Stephen Walsh – Senior Player of the Year 

Stephen Walsh

Stephen Walsh was selected Galway Daily’s 2018 Galway United Senior Player of the Year following three rounds of twitter polling that took place this week (September 24th – 26th). 

The 28-year-old put in a consistent season display despite the Tribesmen failing to reach the play-offs and centre half also struck one goal in 25 appearances.

Formerly of Galway Hibernians and Mervue United, Walsh’s third spell at Galway United has seen him amass over 170 appearances and the respect he carries among the supporters has seen him receive this acknowledgement.

The defender topped the poll with 43% of the vote ahead of Conor Barry (42%), Eoin McCormack (15%) and Alex Byrne (0%).
