Johnston returns for Cavan Gaels

Seanie Johnston finally made a return to competitive action for Cavan Gaels in an All-County Football League Division 1A match yesterday.

However, the 29-year-old, whose long-running transfer saga came to an end recently, couldn’t stop the Gaels from slipping to a one-point defeat away to Ballinagh.

Johnston’s club, who play senior champions Mullahoran in the SFC quarter-final this Friday, fell 0-11 to 0-0 behind in the first half before the former Kildare player converted a penalty.

However, Cavan Gaels, who are managed by Joe O’Connor, uncle of Mayo’s Cillian, ended up losing the match — Johnston’s first in the club colours since late 2011 — by 0-12 to 2-5.
