Some players are worth the ticket price alone and in 2020, Sarah Rowe once again proved she is a world-class athlete.
A gifted footballer, Rowe was named as the AFLW Irish Player Of The Year after her stellar season with her Aussie Rules side, Collingwood Magpies. The Mayo native helped Collingwood to their best ever season before the tournament was cut short due to Covid-19. Throughout the competition, Rowe scored five goals, influenced eighteen score involvements and amassed a fantastic 1324 metres which saw Collingwood win four and lose two.
Back at home, Rowe was hugely influential in her club side’s route to the Mayo Senior Shield final. Rowe alongside her Kilmoremoy LGFA teammates, narrowly lost out to Burrishoole in the final at Swinford by 2-11 to 3-7. With the score 1-08 to 0-01 at half-time, Rowe inspired a spirited comeback with a never say die attitude which saw her score a hatrick of goals to drag them back into the game.
In the All-Ireland Ladies Football Senior Championship, Sarah Rowe was in unstoppable form as Mayo dished out a heavy beating to Tyrone. Rowe scored 2-9 for her side in an impressive display which once again highlighted her world-class athleticism and ability.
Rowe recently signed a new two-year contract with Collingwood Magpies in the AFLW and will compete in the upcoming 2021 season.
