Johnston club transfer to Kildare approved

Seanie Johnston's appeal to join Kildare club St Kevins has been upheld meaning the ex-Cavan forward could play with the Lilywhites this summer.

The GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) on Friday last turned down his transfer request to St Kevin’s, Staplestown from Cavan Gaels.

Subsequent appeals were also rejected but it has been confirmed that the move was finally allowed last night.

The current rules mean that Johnston would have to play for his club before lining out for the county whose Championship opener is against Offaly on June 17.

While no club games are scheduled before that date it is possible some matches maybe arranged.
