The latest scoring charts for the Laois SFC has seen O'Dempsey's sharpshooter Matthew Finlay move to the top of list.

His outstanding recent form, which has seen him average 0-9 in his last three games, has rocketed him to the top of the standings. He leads the way in the 'Overall' category, but shares top spot with a fellow club mate and a Stradbally man in the 'From Play' section.

Elsewhere, there is a tie at the top of the 'Midfielders' section, the status quo remains in the list of top scoring defenders, while we have a clear leader in the 'Goalkeepers' scoring charts. Scroll down to see the full list after the latest round of matches.
