The shortlist for the 2021 TG4 Players' Player of the Year has been named with Meath trio Emma Duggan, Emma Troy and Vikki Wall competing for the accolade.

The winner will be revealed at the All-Star Awards next month, along with the winners at intermediate and junior grades.

Wall was player of the match in the All-Ireland final victory over Dublin, and the Dunboyne player was also the 2020 Intermediate Players’ Player of the Year.

Club-mate Duggan, who collected 3-19 during the championship, scored the crucial goal for Royals against Dublin in the decider, while Troy was a tower of strength in defence throughout the historic campaign.

Meath have also been recognised with 14 All-Star nominations.
