Kilcock v Clogherinkoe – Captain’s Profile Shaun Maguire Kilcock

Name: Shaun Maguire

Age: 27

Height: 5ft 10′

Honours: A Minor B and U/21 A Shield in 2011. Be nice to add an Intermediate Championship to this one.

Someone who has had an influence on your career: I would have to say my brothers Mark and Darren. I grew up watching them play Senior football for Kilcock.

Three words to describe yourself as a player: Hard working, passionate and dedicated.

Favourite Sportsperson: Roy Keane because his passion and desire to win were unrivalled and he took no prisoners.

Best player played with: Dara McVeety from Cavan. He has the whole package.

Toughest opponent: Anton O’Sullivan of Offaly destroyed me. One day in a school’s match!

Favourite club player: Eamon Fitzpatrick has been playing with Kilcock as long as I can remember and he seems to be getting better every year.

Favourite Inter County player: Mattie Donnelly of Tyrone. He’s an extremely intelligent and athletic player, who can fill several positions on the field.

Player you would love to have at your club: Lee Keegan from Mayo. So I could relax and sit on the bench!!

Most memorable sporting moment: Winning a Minor B with Kilcock about ten years ago.

Favourite Gaa ground played in: Canton, Boston.

Best advice someone has given you: My father told me when I was younger to start throwing my weight around on the field a bit more. I think it’s worked fairly ok for me.

Young player in your club we should look out for: Shane Farrell. He’s an amazing young talent, who can kick off both feet and doesn’t seem to have many weak points to be honest.

Most skilful player on your team: Shane O’Rourke. I’ve seen him do some crazy things with a football.

What does it mean to Captain your side in Saturday’s County Final? To be chosen out of this squad of players as Captain is very flattering considering some of the unbelievable players and leaders we have. I just try to do my best to justify the decision every time I train and play.

O’Sullivan Scores In Wexford Rout

Kilcock man Patrick O’Sullivan found the back of the net in his side Wexford FC’s 5-1 victory away to Cabinteely on Friday night.

O’Sullivan, who replaced Jack Larkin on the 84th minute, put the icing on the cake two minutes later for the men from the South East with a composed finish as they picked up a bady needed win, in what must surely go down as one of the most surprising results of the season.

The former Longford Town under-19 player and current Maynooth University student fired into the top corner of the net to seal the victory for the visitors after Charlie Smith teed it up for him with a pass from just outside the penalty area.

The result now sees Wexford move off the bottom of the table, while Cabinteely could drop out of the play off position should UCD defeat Shamrock Rovers second string on Saturday.

Thompson calls time on his role as Kilcock Celtic Chairperson

Kilcock Celtic Chairperson Shane Thompson has revealed his plans to step down from his position at the club’s upcoming AGM.

Thompson made the announcement on the club’s Faebook page over the weekend, where he also announced that he will be taking a break from his role in coaching at the club. “I will be stepping down as chairperson of the club and I will also be taking a break from coaching. After a trying year personally I made the decision to take the break”

The 2017 joint manager of the successful u16 shield winning team went on to thank a number of people at the club who helped him during his term as chairperson. “I would like to thank all committee members, both past and present, who made my tender as chair an enjoyable one of which has given me plenty of life experiences both good and bad. Also thanks to all the coaches for their time, patience and dedication, for without you the kids wouldn’t have football. Thank you to the many parents/supporters and sponsors for all the help and support”

First off Thompson is a football fan and with a bit more spare time now, the Highfield resident revealed that he still plans to attend as many games up at The Bawnouge as possible. He may have no choice if he gets under his wife Angela’ feet; “I’m sure I’ll be spotted at many a game as a supporter. Also thanks to my wife, who I abandoned on many a weekend. I’m going to be under your feet more often now”

The outgoing Chairperson went on to wish the club all the best in the future; “Best of luck to all the teams for the coming season.. Once again thank you all. Shane Thompson”

Shane Thompson – Kilcock Celtic:

•Years Chairman 2014-2019

•Coached 2001/02 group of players from u8 right up to under 17, winning 1st of two shields at under 15 in the 16/17 season and the second shield and league (the double) at under 16 in the 2017 season.

• Part of the coaching set of the club’s senior team for the 2nd half of the season as they won the Division 1/2/3 shield in the second half of 2017.

Talking privately to Shane Thompson, it was clear to see he will be a massive loss to the club, given his raw passion for them. But everyone needs a break and he owes the club nothing. No doubt he will be back involved in the future. Thompson gave a special mention to Dave Reilly, John Hill and Brendan Rooney who he coached with over the years.

His legacy as Chairperson, aside from his obvious development of youth at the club, will be how he pushed for pitch development and an improvement in the overall quality of facilities such as the gym, astro and dugouts at clubhouse.

Best of luck Shane from Robert at ExtraTimeSportLive.com and thank you for all your cooperation during your time at the helm. Whoever takes your place has big boots to fill.
