Galway realised their spring objective registering a win to earn a return to Division One of the Allianz Football League.
An experimental Kildare outfit caused Galway problems in the west, but Kevin Walsh’s developing side did just enough to secure the spoils.
The teams will collide again in the Division Two decider next Sunday which offers another competitive fixture ahead of the Championship.
Despite making 14 changes from the team that defeated Clare last Sunday, a new look Kildare still performed adequately in the opening period.
Fionn Dowling, outstanding at centrefield, kicked three sweet first half points from play for Kildare, who only trailed by 0-7 to 0-4 at the break.
Galway offered glimpses of their ability with Tom Flynn, Sean Armstrong, Shane Walsh, and Johnny Heaney rifling over splendid efforts for the Tribesmen, who led by three at the turnaround.
By the 45th minute Galway’s advantage had been extended to five, 0-11 to 0-6, following a decent burst which included scores from Eamonn Brannigan, Armstrong, and Paul Conroy.
Kildare, who introduced a few regulars, continued to battle with David Hyland and Cathal McNally trimming the gap.
Galway responded once more with the pacy duo Walsh and Brannigan kicking excellent points as Galway led 0-13 to 0-8 with 15 minutes remaining.
The Lilywhites struck four points in a row with Niall Kelly (2) and Dowling (2) finding the range with Galway under severe pressure.
Walsh burst through to land a vital score for Galway, but the effective McNally narrowed the gap again for the spirited visitors.
It was a tense finale in Salthill for the bumper home crowd, but Galway will join Kildare in the top flight next year.
Final score: Galway 0-14 Kildare 0-13
Scorers for Galway: Shane Walsh 0-3, Eamonn Brannigan, Sean Armstrong, Gary Sice (2fs) and Barry McHugh (2fs) 0-2 each, Paul Conroy, Johnny Heaney, and Tom Flynn 0-1 each.
Scorers for Kildare: Fionn Dowling 0-5 (1f), Ben McCormack, Cathal McNally, and Niall Kelly 0-2 each, David Hyland, and Eamonn Callaghan 0-1 each.
