John Scully in action for Portlaoise RFC.

The results are in for our Sports Star of the Month poll for January, and Portlaoise RFC back John Scully has taken the first award of 2018.

John was nominated after a brilliant individual performance against Navan in the Towns Cup, as he scored four tries to knock the Meath side out at the first hurdle. It was the first time any Portlaoise player had scored four tries in a Towns Cup game.

Scully saw off competition from Laois and UCD footballer Eoin Lowry and Portlaoise AFC netminder Mateusz Cwienk.
