Kilduff Nets In Dundalk Win

Kilcock man Ciaran Kilduff scored Dundalk’s 3rd goal in what turned out to be a comfortable 4-0 win for the champions against Sligo Rovers on Saturday night March 4th at The Showgrounds. 

The goal was the big strikers 2nd in 2 games in what has been a fast start to the season, taking up where he left off in 2016.

Kilduff powered home the header in the final quarter when he met Sean Gannon’s cross just before he was replaced by debutant Thomas Stewart.

Kilcock man Brendan Rooney, who is part of Groves’ coaching staff, brought the lads down to give them a chance to train with the Airtricity Premier League clubs’ u19 team and the six, Fionn Talbot, Dylan Bradley, Josh Sherlock, Adam O’Connell, Lee Loughnane and Remi Kareen didn’t let him down. Rooney said; “I am on the coaching staff, Wayne Groves is the manager, he is ex St.Kevins . I took them down to train and give them a chance and Wayne told them during the week that he would like to keep them training, with a view to signing in the future”.

It would come as no surprise to see some of these lads strutting their stuff at the top-level of Irish football in the next few years, following in the footsteps of fellow Kilcock men Aaron Brilly (Cabinteely FC) and Ciaran Kilduff (Dundalk). Id addition to this Brian McNamara is currently banging them in for American side Nashville FC.
