Clifford named as new captain of Kerry's senior footballers

The Fossa clubman, who turns 21 on Wednesday, will lead the Kingdom out for 2020.

DAVID CLIFFORD WILL captain the Kerry senior footballers this year. 

The talented corner forward, who celebrates his 21st birthday in two days’ time, was nominated by East Kerry –the divisional side which he won the county senior title with in 2019.

Having made his senior inter-county debut during the 2018 National Football League, Clifford has quickly become a star for the Kingdom as they claimed two Munster titles and reached last year’s All-Ireland final only to lose out to Dublin in a replay. 

Last year, Gavin White captained Kerry to the Munster title and in the drawn All-Ireland final before Paul Murphy took on the duties for the replay. 

The news was confirmed today by county chairman Tim Murphy during a Kerry GAA press event at their Centre of Excellence in Currans.
