Naomh Columba minor player, Aaron Doherty, is the July winner of the Donegal Democrat’s Monthly Youth Sport Award, sponsored by Liam Mailey Trophies.
Aaron, as he has been for his school Coláiste na Carraige, was on fire again for Naomh Columba as they won the Donegal Minor League, defeating MacCumhaill's in the final. Aaron contributed 0-11 in the final from centre half-back.
One of the most promising talents in the county, Aaron was a member of the Donegal minor team this year.
The17-year-old returns to Coláiste na Carraige on Wednesday next for his final year at secondary level, but no doubt he is set for further honours at college, club and county level. Next year he will be eligible to play for the Naomh Columba senior team and will be a huge addition to their ranks.
