The long running transfer saga surrounding Seanie Johnston’s proposed switch to Kildare may be about to draw to a conclusion.
The players club Cavan Gaels have given the go ahead for Johnston to transfer to Kildare club St Kevin’s. The result means that the forward would then be free to line out with the Lilywhites.
Today’s news does not mean the transfer automatically gets the green light however, as the Central Competitions’ Control Committee must still hold a hearing after the Cavan County Board expressed doubts over the players declared permanent residence in Straffan.
The Gaels’ management committee met last night, and voted to stick with its policy of not blocking any attempted transfer out of the club.
The club issued a statement on Twitter stating: “It is the policy of Cavan Gaels GAA club not to stand in the way of transfer requests from any of our players.”
Cavan Gaels secretary said:. “We won’t be saying anymore apart from what is on our Twitter account,” said Walsh.
The transfer form has been signed and sent to Croke Park. With the move not being supported by the Cavan board, Johnston can expect to hear from the CCCC shortly with regard to a hearing.
