David Clifford is named Young Footballer of the Year
Kerry’s David Clifford has been named Young Footballer of the Year at the gala black tie event in Dublin tonight. David Clifford made his senior Championship debut this season at the tender age of 19 carrying a weight of expectation after his stunning exploits at minor level. He made light work of that attention however, to make a seamless transition to the top flight, with his eye for scores setting him apart as something special and has landed him a PwC All-Star and Young Footballer of the Year.
Uachtarán CLG John Horan said: "In congratulating Cian, Kyle and indeed Brian and David for their overall awards, I am conscious of what these awards must mean to their families, friends and also the clubs who helped set all of our All-Stars out on this road, and thank PwC for helping us to continue this prestigious scheme.”
Congratulations to David, his family and all in Fossa club on this wonderful achievement. Others who were awarded this accolade were Tommy Walsh in 2008, Killian Young 2007 and Mike Frank Russell in 1997.
