#TheToughest: The best club football team of all time, as voted by you

This team would take some beating.

It would take no beating.


For the last seven weeks, you've been voting for the best club footballers of all time and the final result is mightily impressive.

The only stipulation all along was that players had to have won an All-Ireland with their clubs to be considered and, having whittled it down province by province, position by position, the team of 15 is just beautiful.

Crossmaglen dominate the side, and rightly so. Having boasted perhaps the greatest and most successful club team ever through the 21st century, an Armagh man makes every line on the pitch.

Six Cross' players are joined by two Ballinderry men to complete an Ulster stronghold on the team with Connacht well represented throughout as well.


The last position was that of the goalkeeper where Paul Hearty just edged out Shane Curran in the vote:

Paul Hearty (Crossmaglen and Armagh) - 43.22%
Shane Curran (St. Brigid's and Roscommon) - 36.83%
Charlie Nelligan (Castleisland Desmonds and Kerry) - 16.87%
Mick Pender (Kilmacud Crokes and Dublin) - 3.08%

But marvel in this selection of 15 because it would bright up a rainy day.

Here it is: the greatest club football team of all time.
