Kildare shook by the loss of 2 more players who are leaving for the States

It’s the latest in a long line of departures from Jason Ryan’s panel.

KILDARE HAVE BEEN dealt a major blow following the departures of Athy duo Darroch Mulhall and David Hyland from the senior panel.

Both players are expected to head to the States for the remainder of the summer, after informing Ryan they were leaving the panel following last weekend’s 19-point drubbing against Dublin.

Mulhall was an unused substitute in Sunday’s game, while Hyland came on for the injured Ollie Lyons 11 minutes into the match. Mulhall has fallen out of favour this year with Jason Ryan, despite showing huge promise when bursting onto the scene last year.

His defection leaves the former Wexford boss with even less options for the Lilywhites’ forward line, with the likes of Seán Hurley, Neil Flynn, Paddy Brophy, Tomás O’Connor and Daniel Flynn all leaving the panel in the last two years.

Ryan will have to try and get the Lilywhites back on track this Saturday when Kildare travel to O’Connor Park to take on Offaly in the Round 2B football qualifier.
