John Evans says he can “definitely” see Paudie Clifford lining out for Kerry in the near future.

The Fossa man will be one of the leading lights for East Kerry this weekend as they look to retain the county championship at the expense of Mid Kerry.

Evans has previously managed the Clifford brothers with Fossa and spoke of their quality, including the energy levels of Paudie: “he has about four good engines, never mind one.”

The currenr Glenbeigh-Glencar boss, who will watch Darran O’Sullivan and a number of his other club stars line out for Mid Kerry in the final, feels that David is quite a different player to his brother.

Where he does see similarities is in their temperament and how “they will fight to get the most out of themselves”.

Evans compares and contrasts David Clifford with Kerry legend Maurice Fitzgerald, and talks about how the young Kingdom captain should deal with the close attention he gets on the field of play.
