Kildare ready to welcome Seanie Johnston

Updated: January 23, 2012

Kildare boss Kieran McGeeney has said that he would welcome former Cavan star Seanie Johnston into his panel.

Cavan Gaels forward Johnston has been told that there is no place for him in the northern sides panel this season, and has publicy stated that he is willing to transfer to Kildare and try and get in their county team. It is believed that Johnston has already moved to Straffan and is planning to go in front of Croke Park bosses to plead his case.

McGeeney says that he runs an open door policy in Kildare, and that if Johnston is interested in playing for the Lilywhites then he will have a look at him.

“If he wants to play for Kildare, the same as anybody else wants to play for Kildare, I’ve an open door policy,” McGeeney said on KFM.

“He can come here, turn up, play, train and I’ve never stopped anybody who’s wanted to play for Kildare. He has indicated that he wants to and we’ll take him in with open arms but he’s going to have his work cut out.

“There are a lot of fellas there who want their place too and if Seanie steps in here he’s going to have to put up like everybody else.”
