2020 Midlands Champions & Leinster Quarter Finalists - A Division


On Friday, January 31st, Kildare Town Community School beat Maynooth Community College to become the Junior Midlands Champions of Ireland in an emphatic 8 – 2 score line. After going 1-0 down in the opening moments of the match and with KTCS still behind at halftime in a 2- 1 scoreline, our students showed great talent, determination, character and resilience to come back out for the second half and blow the opposition away scoring seven more goals. Max Cosgrove got an incredible five goals, whilst Ben Ryan got a hugely impressive hat trick. Every student played exceptional. This young team had only just played their semi-final last Wednesday, 29th January and had to win it late into extra time in a 1- 0 score line. Huge thanks must be given to management and parents who have supported the team throughout the year. KTCS will now represent the midland counties of Ireland in the upcoming elite Leinster Championship. This championship is an honour our school previously won in 2014, and this team will be training hard in the next few months to repeat this feat.

Team: Liam Houlihan, Samir Prakash, Conor Clancy, Jack Ryan, Ewan Morris, Geordan Lambert (Captain), Max Cosgrove, Jay Thackaberry, Ben Ryan, Kyle Donoghue, Adam O'Keefe

Subs: Riain Christie, Stephen Murtagh, Cameron Morton, Cormac Houlihan, Dylan Clarke, Daniel Hunter, Jamie Butler, Ross Farrell, Daniel Asemota, Hotneil Mbebe, Tiegan Ryan Klimuk, Kalem Doyle, Adam Quinn, Tadhg O Connor, Ben Walsh

Senior Midlands Champions & Leinster Championship Winners - A Division

soccer 1.jpg

This was a historic year for senior soccer in KTCS. The team won the Midland Championship after winning five games in a row and ended in a Leinster final victory with a 3-2 scoreline.

A special mention must go to all the 6th years leaving the team such as Eoin Murphy, Ross O'Donoghue Carroll, Rory Butler, Callum Flynn, Brandon Phillips, Brandon O'Keefe, Keith Clancy, Robert Burke, Eoghan McCabe, Aaron Behan, Adam Phillips, Sheldan Matans and Jakub Wysocki. Brandon O'Keefe is our captain and player of the year. I wish them all a successful future.

We have a great bunch of players coming through, and the team is looking good for next year with Evan Comerford, Aaron Walsh, Ryan Dowling, Darren Murray, Tadhg Hagney, Damien Berns, Josh Burns, Robyn Matans, Ryan Gregan and some great younger players such as James Clancy, Mark O Donovan and Adam Christie etc.

This team has an excellent work rate, commitment and discipline. We are immensely proud of them all, and they have done the school proud.

2016 Under 15s retain the Regional Kildare Cup but lose our Leinster Crown in the Semi-Finals of the Leinster Cup - A Division

Considering only a few players from last year’s winning squad were still eligible to play on this team, retaining the Kildare regional Trophy was a great achievement. The opening group stages showed early promise of a successful year as we registered big score lines in our favour ensuring we finished top of our group resulting in a home semi-final which we also won easily. The final was a different story as we came up against Rathangan. After an earlier goal from Keith Clancy, it took a last-minute goal from Emmanual Iria to send the match into extra time. All penalties were expertly dispatched, and it took a memorable save from Robyn Matan to win the Cup for Kildare Town.

This success qualified us for the quarter-final stages of the Leinster Cup, where we played CBS New Ross, the Wexford Champions. Again the lads were victorious as they ran out 3-0 winners. This led to a semi-final showdown against Firhouse from Dublin. Despite giving a very good account of ourselves, we were deservedly beaten 3-1 on the day. There were great performances all year from the following players: Eoghan McCabe, our rock at the back, Keith Clancy, Daniel Gilbert, Lee Page, Callum Flynn, Brandon Phillips, Jakub Wyscoki, Captain Ryan Dowling, Brandon O Keffe and player of the season Emmanuel Iria.

Under 15 Squad: Rory Butler, Ryan Dowling, Brandon Phillips,Tadgh Hagney, Josh Daly, Lee Page, Callum Flynn, Ryan Gregan, Jakub Wyscoki, Cian Walsh, Damien Berns, Keith Clancy, Daniel Gilbert, Emmanuel Iria, Martin Byrne, Robyn Mballa, Eoghan McCable, Aaron Isiramen, Brandon O’Keffee, Darren Murray

Under 17s awarded the Midlands Cup but leave the Leinster Crown behind them - A-Division


This was a historic winning year for the under 17’s as they won the Under 17 Kildare Regional Cup in the very top division. After winning the Under 15 Leinster title in the B Division last year, the team was promoted to the Top Division and adapted straight away as they finished top of the group with high scoring wins in all our group matches. A semi-final date against Kilcullen in December followed as we ran out 2-1 winners, setting up a final against Pipers Hill in Naas where we were awarded the Kildare Regional trophy.

Honoured now with the task of representing County Kildare in the Leinster Champions League, we were paired against St. Pauls of Raheny, Dublin, in the quarter-final. This was a game we left behind us as we lost 6-5 in extra time, despite building up a comfortable lead at halftime. This was an extremely bitter pill to swallow, however many important lessons will have hopefully been learnt in the process. I wish these players all the best as many up the team move up an age group, and look forward to working with the players still eligible to defend our Kildare Trophy next year. Special mention must go to the ever-present and impressive Conor Darby, Lorcan Wickham, Jason Maher, Stephen Keogh, Chris O Mahony, Leon Tsang, Adam Fitzpatrick, Adam Gilligan. Player of the season was between captain David Kelly, the extremely talented George Foran and top goal scorer Cathal Hagney, but Cathal Hagney fully deserves the honour as his prolific goal-scoring ability gave us an extra edge over our opposition in many of our games. I foresee a very bright future in the game for these players.

Under 17 Squad: Conor Darby, Gorge Foran, Adam Gilligan, Cathal Hagney, Lorcan Wickham, Jose Marcos, Jason Maher, John O’Dwyer, Devon Guing, Stephen Keogh, James Ebbs, Leon Tsang, David Kelly, Liam Robertson, Conor McGovern, Marvin Mballa, Alex McCann, Chris O Mahony, Adam Fitzpatrick

The first piece of Soccer silverware for the Kildare Town Community School 2016 season was claimed on Wednesday 18th November. Nine schools from all over Kildare battled it out to see who would be the Regional Futsal Champions, an event hosted by the Football Association of Ireland (FAI). Kildare Town Community School won all their group games over Pipers Hill in Naas, Maynooth Community College, Confey College, Leixlip and St. Pauls in Monasterevin. The final proved to be a nerve-wracking encounter resulting in success against Naas Community School.

The players involved included Darren Murray, Damien Berns, Tadhg Hagney, Robyn Matans, Ryan Gregan, Josh Daly, Josh Burns, Danny Kelly, Owen Kealey, Tadhg O Reilly and Destiny Asemota. Special mention must go to captain Damien Berns, top goalscorer Tadhg Hagney, Darren Murray, Robyn Matans and player of the tournament Ryan Gregan who all started in the final. The presence of such a talented group of players augurs well for future successes for Kildare Town Community School.
