Tony Kernan may have laboured along with the rest of an under-achieving Armagh side this year but it was a much different story at club level.

The 29-year-old retail chartered surveyor has claimed Armagh and Ulster club championship medals to date and as he focuses on another All-Ireland honour in the New Year he has now been given a considerable boost following his choice as the Quinn Building Products Ulster GAA Writers Association Merit Award winner for November.

It was a stunning performance in the provincial final against Scotstown when he scored 1-6.

"We were pushed to the pin of our collar by Scotstown," admitted Kernan.

"I'm delighted that I am the one chosen to receive this award but everyone pulled their weight. Still, it is nice to be the chosen one."

Kernan,beat off a stiff challenge from Rangers' super-sub Jamie Clarke, Scotstown's Darren Hughes, Neil McAuley (Antrim) and Mickey Morgan, who guided Rockcorry to Ulster JFC success.
