RIP Evan

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the sudden passing of Evan Fitzgerald. Evan was a valued member of our club and an integral part of our U16 team, he can be seen below with his team and his father Keith on the day of their cup final win this year.

Everyone here at Johnstown FC wishes to extend our condolences to Evan’s family, friends and team-mates at this very difficult time

Death notice:

May Evan Rest in Peace

Senior Team Announcement

Johnstown F.C. are delighted to announce and congratulate Eoin Sheridan as the new manager of our senior team for 2020.
Eoin was one of the founding members of the club and has been a dedicated player and coach for our club since its inception. Eoin has always shown great dedication to everything he puts himself forward for and always gives 100%. We look forward to watching him bring our seniors forward in 2020 and wish him and everyone involved the best of luck!

It is with this appointment we also must pay a huge debt of gratitude to Christy Kavanagh & Fergal Berine for their guidance in the senior setup for the past number of years. Christy and Fergal have worked tirelessly over the past seasons and we thank them both for their unwavering commitment to Johnstown F.C. They will be a big loss to the senior setup but we know they will continue their involvement in the club and will always be there to support Johnstown F.C.

Presentation night and Fundraiser

On Saturday the club held its annual senior presentation night in O’Briens Johnstown. We also took the chance to run a fundraiser with the help of Salina’s Musical Bingo. It was an extremely enjoyable night and thanks to all who attended. A big shoutout must go to the seniors and U12’s & U14’s girls parents who stayed and supported the club and everyone else who attended.

Also a huge thanks to all managers and club members who sourced spot prizes for the bingo and raffle on the night. The club really appreciates all the generosity of local businesses in supplying these prizes.

On the night there were a number of awards handed out over the two seniors teams for the season just past.
