U20 footballers draw with Kildare in John Kerins Cup

Mon, 13th January 2020



A late scoring surge saw Kildare secure a draw with Dublin in Saturday's John Kerins U20 Football Development League at Manguard Plus Hawkfield.

Dublin led by four points as the game moved into added time before a Findlay Nairn goal and Shane O'Sullivan free saw Kildare draw level before the full-time whistle.

The Dubs face Laois in their concluding game this Saturday at the Laois Centre of Excellence (2.0) following their narrow lose to Meath and draw with Kildare.

Dublin face Wicklow in the Leinster U20FC first round on Saturday, February 8.

Luke Swan kicked three early points for the Dubs with Ciarán Archer converting a free to give the Dubs a 0-4 to 0-0 lead.

Kildare responded before points from Mark Lavin and Seán Lowry settled Dublin again.

The Lilywhites, however, took the lead courtesy of four frees from Shane O'Sullivan before scores from Mark Lavin and Lorcan O'Dell helped Dublin to a 0-9 to 0-7 interval lead.

Dublin scored four of the opening six points of the second half with Pádraig Purcell doing well and with 15 minutes remaining Tom Gray's side were six points clear.

Darragh Kirwan's goal from the Lilywhites brought them back into contention but still Dublin led by four points late on before Kildare snatched a draw with Findlay Nairn's goal and Shane O'Sullivan's equalising free.
