Watch: Marc Ó Sé And James Horan Hail "Outstanding" David Clifford

Kerry banished relegation fears tonight and bounced back after last week's hammering at the hands of Dublin with a comfortable 0-19 to 0-14 win in Tralee against Kildare.

The result confirms Kildare's relegation from Division one as Cian O'Neill continues his rebuilding project. For Kerry, Eamon Fitzmaurice continued with his young guns as he looks to introduce a host of talent from the highly successful underage teams in recent years.

The most highly touted of those players was last year's minor star and Tralee IT man David Clifford. Clifford was the Kingdom's leading scorer tonight with 0-6 and the men on duty for Eir Sport, former Kerry footballer Marc O'Se and former Mayo manager James Horan, were clearly impressed.

Clifford is a lively inside forward who rarely takes too much out of the ball and has a keen eye for goal.

While it is early days yet, the development of young players like Clifford, Micheál Burns and Sean O'Shea indicate a bright future for the Kingdom.
