Paul Kerrigan marked his 100th apperance for Nemo Rangers with his 300th point in yesterday's Munster club SFC final victory over Clonmel Commercials.

The Cork star's fisted point in the 53rd minute was his 231st for the Trabeg-based club as a senior player, with his 23 goals making up the balance. He joins his father Jimmy and former Cork All-Ireland winning captain Dinny Allen as the only Nemo players to have reached the milestone.

“It took me long enough to get the point and it looked like a bit of a bogey score so I am happy enough to have it off my back to be honest. I missed about four or five before I eventually managed to score it," Kerrigan told the Echo newspaper.

“I love being available to play for the club, touch wood I have been injury free nearly all my career, bar a couple of weeks here and there, so it’s always great to put on the club jersey.

“I think my dad has 101 so hopefully I will equal that the next day and go beyond it. Any time you get to play championship with Nemo is a real honour and we have a really tight and good group of players. We have a lot of young lads coming through which is what you want and it keeps the club in a healthy place."
