Kildare's Emmet Bolton to miss early league action

Emmet Bolton

Kildare  defender Emmet Bolton is set to miss a fair proportion of the upcoming Allianz Football League (Division 2) following an operation over Christmas for a burst appendix.

The popular defender, one of Kildare’s most experienced players in the 2017 squad, was hospitalised on Christmas Day with stomach pains and underwent surgery on St Stephen’s Day.
