The stars of amateur football have been shining bright so far this season. There have been standout performers across the country in all areas of the pitch.
However, there can only be one JSP Player of the Week and this week we have plumped for Ger Shortt.
The live wire front man has started the season on fire and bagged six goals in two games for Collinstown.
Not only did he hit back to back hat tricks, but his goals were instrumental in ensuring a win over St Francis and a come from behind draw with Ardmore. He gets the award not just for the quality or quantity of his strikes, but for their importance in the grand scheme of things.
Philly Nolan is another who registered important goals, scoring back to back winners for Tolka Rovers as they got their season up and running.
The attacker has popped up when it matter most to ensure a much needed six points from the last two games.
Also impressing in that division is Lee Roche. With his brother Aidan away Lee has taken over chief goal scoring responsibilities and added to his season tally with a brilliant hat trick away to Glenville to cement Liffey Wanderers’ early leader status.
The likes of Collin Daly and John Connery have proved impressive in front of goal in Limerick this week.
Mark Devlin was on fire for Eastwall Rovers scoring twice in their 3-3 draw with Rivervalley, while TJ McHugh was a hat trick hero for Oliver Bond as they made it two wins from two.
Also worth a mention is Niall Fagan, who scored four for Inny FC in a top of the table clash against Maynooth Town FC in the KDFL.
