First Division Player of the week – Georgie Kelly (UCD)

UCD striker Georgie Kelly is our SSE Airtricity League First Division Player of the week after scoring twice in the students 4-1 win over Athlone Town.

The striker scored twice in 26 second-half minutes to lead his side up to second place in the First Division table. They sit just a single point behind most people’s title favourites Waterford.

Kelly was superb for UCD last Friday night, and his manager Collie O’Neill sang his praises after the game saying, “Georgie led the line very well and finished his chances like an experienced pro.”

Kelly now has four goals to his name this season, joint leader in the First Division scoring charts with team-mate Gary O’Neill, Cobh’s Christopher ‘Kaka’ McCarthy and Shelbourne’s Derek Prendergast.
