Waterford FC striker Mark O’Sullivan is this week’s SSE Airtricity League First Division Player of the Week.
It was a close run thing between O’Sullivan, Longford Town’s Enda Curran and Cabinteely’s Kieran ‘Marty’ Waters, after all three had double strikes for their respective clubs in victories over the weekend.
We opened up the vote on our social media pages and O’Sullivan came out on top, but only marginally.
After three efforts which were either saved or narrow misses in the first half, O’Sullivan headed Waterford in front against Athlone just after the break when he flicked on a corner from Dean O’Halloran.
For his second goal he latched onto a long ball from goalkeeper Matthew Connor and he out-muscled the Athlone defence to blast home. In the last minute Athlone keeper Labuts pushed aside a goal-bound effort to deny the hat-trick.
