It was confirmed during the week that Kilcock man Ciaran Kilduff, along with three other players have returned to Jacksonville Armada for 2018.
Kilduff, who joined Armada in 2017 and went on to score four goals as the Florida club just missed out on a play-off place in the NASL, returned to America in late January with his and the club’s future still up in the air.
The club were unsure if they would have a league to partake in for 2018 but it was revealed two weeks ago by club owner Robert Palmer that the club would play in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) from April through to July, using it as a pre season warm up for August.
It’s not the first time the club have had to drop down to the NPSL. Palmer is currently working with other owners to get the NASL back up and running for the Fall League. The club also hope to play a number of high profile exhibition games over the coming months.
Former Dundalk star Kilduff is joined back at the club by Kalen Ryden, JC Banks and Derek Gebhard, while in the past few days the club have also signed two new players Conor Doyle and Javier Monsalvez.
We wish Ciaran all the best in 2018. We have been following his fortunes for a number of years now and a nicer man you will go a long way to meet.
