Kildare have beaten Sligo to become 2023 All Ireland U20 football champions.

The Lilywhites pulled away in the last few minutes of the game, going from two to eight points in front.

A good second half push from Sligo made it look like a comeback was on the cards, despite injuries to Ross Chambers, Joshua Flynn and James Donlon among others forcing early changes.

Killian Browne got a late Kildare goal, capitalising on a short kick out to lob goalkeeper Ethan Carden.

Luke Marren hit 0-8 of Sligo's tally but it just wasn't to be for Paul Henry's side on the day.
