SCARIFF’s Mark Rodgers has been named as the young hurler of the year for 2023.
Mark fended off competition from Feakle’s Adam Hogan and Ciaran Joyce of Cork to win the accolade. He becomes the first Clare hurler to win the award since Tony Kelly in 2013.
Speaking on Friday evening, the UL student paid tribute to his family and club for their significant input in his career.
A two-time Fitzgibbon Cup winner, Mark scored four goals in this year’s championship on his way to earning the Young Hurler of the year accolade and an All Star nominee.
Awards have been flowing to the Rodgers family home as of late with Mark also winning the MD MyClubShop.ie / The Clare Echo top scorer of the senior hurling championship award after amassing a tally of 5-56 when guiding his club to the last four.
Also on the night, John Conlon and Shane O’Donnell collected their second All Star awards.
