After starring for Johnstownbridge in their run to the Kildare IFC title, Sean Hurley is going to give Aussie Rules a shot in November

Daniel Flynn won’t be the only Johnstownbridge man in Australia next month.

Teammate, Sean Hurley, who was named man-of-the-match in Saturday’s intermediate football final, is travelling Down Under in the hope of securing an Aussie Rules contract.

I’m going over to Perth in November to give it a shot anyway. It’s a good sport and fair play to Dan (Flynn) for getting the contract over there. I’ll miss him but I don’t know what the story is yet with me to be honest,” said Hurley after Saturday’s final victory against Castledermot.

The towering midfielder finished the game with 0-8 after a phenomenal display.

I just can’t believe it. I’m only on the team for three or four years and I thought it would never come. Other boys have been here seven or eight years.

I only have to put the ball over the bar, it’s the hard work that was put in back there, Keith Cribbin getting back there I could name out the whole team, I’m so happy for everybody.

We’ll enjoy this for a few days but then we’ll get our focus back on Leinster. We don’t know what’s coming in Leinster but we’ll give it a good crack whatever is put in front of us.”
