PAUL DURCAN’S MISPLACED kick-out into the arms of Kieran Donaghy may have been critical in Donegal’s All-Ireland final defeat to Kerry, but he remains the front-runner to claim his second Allstar next week.

Durcan enjoyed an excellent campaign up to that point and will likely be rewarded for it, but he faces competition from Stephen Cluxton and Rory Beggan – two fine goalkeepers with a penchant for scoring long-distance frees.

Goalkeeper nominees:
