Allianz FL D2: Goals crucial for Kildare
Allianz Football League Division Two
KILDARE 2-12 FERMANAGH 0-14
By Ger McNally at St Conleth’s Park
Kildare began life under Jack O’Connor with a hard fought win over Fermanagh in St Conleths Park but it was returning star Daniel Flynn who grabbed the headlines with a crucial second half goal to swing the game in Kildare’s favour.
Flynn’s goal came just after a spell of four points in a row for Fermanagh that turned a three point deficit into a one point lead in the 57th minute lead.
Kildare have struggled before against teams who are defensively well-organised and being behind heading into the last 10 minutes was the last place they wanted to be.
However, just a minute after Ultan Kelm had put Fermanagh ahead, the home side put together a move that involved a delightful pass by Paddy Brophy, some hard work by Shea Ryan and once Flynn got on the ball he finished with aplomb to give Kildare a lead they preserved until the final whistle.
