KILDARE FORWARD SEANIE Johnston is apparently one step closer to a return to his native club Cavan Gaels this morning, Kildare’s KFM reports.

Johnston was the subject of an inter-county controversy last year when he was eventually granted a transfer to St Kevin’s GAA club and fast-tracked into Kieran McGeeney’s Kildare squad.

However, having not yet made a senior championship start for the Lilywhites in two campaigns, reports emerged last month that Johnston is now ready for return transfer.

Last night, KFM tweeted confirmation that Johnston had lodged a transfer request with his Kildare club.


Cavan Gaels yesterday lost 1-10 to 0-8 at the hands of Castlerahan in round 2a of the Cavan club championship – they will continue through the ‘back door’ of round three.
