It will come as no surprise to anyone that Dublin midfielder and RTÉ Player Of The Year Brian Fenton, along with the All Ireland Man Of The Match Michael Fitzsimons have both been nominated for the Opel GAA/GPA September Player of the Month Award. 

Cuala’s Michael Fitzsimons had quite literally the game of his career last Saturday and was a worthy recipient of the Man Of The Match. 

Raheny’s Brian Fenton has become the odds on favourite to pick up the coveted GAA/GPA Player Of The Year Award and based on his performance in both All Ireland games against Mayo the shortlist would be incomplete without his name on it. 

The winner of this, and the September Hurling Player Of The Month will be announced on Thursday, October 13th.
