Find out which of the Colleges and Universities players impressed for their sides in this week's SSE Airtricity League.

Notable Appearances

It was a good week to be a keeper as three Colleges and Universities players kept their opposition at bay for 90 minutes. Maynooth University's Conor O'Malley pulled off numerous good saves to keep Shamrock Rovers at bay in the Dublin derby.

Elsewhere, it was simpler of tasks for DCU and Shels stopper Jack Brady, and his UCD counterpart Niall Corbett who had some miserly defence's in front of them.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there was a pleasant shock for UCD supporters as Gary O'Neill scored his 12th goal of the season. The shock was not in O'Neill scoring, more so that the goal did not come from a dead ball.
