WE JUST TOLD PLAY­ERS TO DO WHAT THEY WERE DO­ING

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Kerry Tyrone - BY PAT NOLAN

JIM GAVIN in­sisted the “slate is wiped clean” for all his play­ers de­spite last night’s run­away win.

Ex­pe­ri­enced de­fend­ers Cian O’Sul­li­van and

Philly McMa­hon were left on the bench while the likes of Bernard Bro­gan and Rory O’Car­roll couldn’t even make the match­day 26.

Gavin said: “The slate is wiped clean af­ter to­day, the per­for­mance was a col­lec­tive group pre­par­ing and get­ting the team ready. Just be­cause a player isn’t here on match day doesn’t mean that doesn’t in­flu­ence his team-mates. They do.

“It’s just that we can only se­lect 26 to rep­re­sent the team but make no mis­take about it – there are out­stand­ing lead­ers that weren’t on the pitch to­day but are lead­ing in the shad­ows of this team.”
