Kilcock man joins club only a stones throw away

Former Kilcock GAA Club goalie Shane Stone has put pen to paper on a deal that will see him play for fellow Kilcock and Newtown Parish side Cappagh GAA in 2019.

Stone, who captained Kilcock in 2017 as they reached the Kildare GAA IFC final before losing to Raheens, will hope to help his new club to Junior Championship glory in the year ahead.

The experienced netminder made his adult debut for Kilcock back in 1996 and has been one of the most iconic players in the club up to his retirement at the end of 2017.

Speaking to Extra Time Sport earlier today, Stone explained how he is excited with the new challenge, while at the same time he said it will be strange not pulling on the green and gold jersey before a game; “I am looking forward to getting into it with my new team mates. It wasn’t an easy decision after all my years with Kilcock. Kilcock are my hometown club and they will always have a place in my heart. But the chance to play some first team football was too hard to turn down. I retired at the end of 2017 and I thought that was my lot in terms of my Gaa career but when Cappagh came calling I couldn’t refuse. I would like to thank Kilcock for all they have done for me since I was a young lad but for now my focus is help Cappagh win some silverware in 2019. They have some great young lads up there and I am mad to get going”

Stone will bring a wealth of experience to Newtown having played in Senior Championship and league finals as well as managing numerous teams in his time at Kilcock. One thing is for sure thet Cappagh defenders will know he has arrived!

Kilcock Celtic duo Josh Geoghegan and Josh Kilkenny have signed for Longford Town u15s.

It brings to thirteen the amount of Celtic players that have signed up for the Midlanders at one age group or another over the past few years as the two clubs continue to keep close ties.

Just last week Longford u19s were due to play Brendan Rooney’s Kilcock senior team for the Frank O’Connor Memorial Cup but the game unfortunately fell foul to the incesent rain on Saturday night.

Also last week, Josh Fogarty and Darragh Confrey signed for Longford’s u17s.
