It’s great to be back!

Our two senior teams finally got back playing competitive football this week. We were able to show off our new home and away kits thanks to our friends at Taylors Johnstown . Come see how good we look!

We started out well in the Kilmessan shield in Thursday but just ran out of steam and were pipped in an exciting game verses Robinstown up in the MDL Grounds . Yesterday we traveled to Athboy Celtic  fantastic new pitch, we played some great football in parts on the excellent surface but lost out by a single goal in the end.

It was great to be back playing and both teams will take huge positives going into next week. #upthejohnner #communityclub #supportlocal #heartofjohnstown #johnstownfc

Johnstown FC back in the heart of Johnstown

Johnstown FC want to thank all the members and volunteers that turned up to clean up the park this morning. There was a great sense of community spirit and it was super to hear and see the kids using the park as a community facility.

We wish to thank Alan Lawes and Johnstown Tidy Towns for the pickers and other equipment. We also want to thank JPP for allowing the club the opportunity to have the community’s club partner with them in the park for the potential benefit for all. It was super to see it used in a positive manner. We hope the kids enjoy training there over the summer.

Thanks to P.D Water Services for Sponsoring a kit for our U13s

Johnstown FC want to thank and give a big shout out to a very generous local business P.D Water Services, for sponsoring a kit for our under 13 side. Check out Paul’s page for water softener installs and drinking water systems. It makes a huge difference in a hard water area like Johnstown

See below, Paul and his son Darragh in the new kit in the people’s park this evening, more news coming there soon. Christy Kavanagh representing Johnstown FC. #keepitlocal #upthejohnner #JohnstownFC

Over €4000 raised and 1000 miles run for the Mater Foundation by Johnstown FC

During the course of February, a number of Johnstown FC senior players and Johnstown FC coaches were able to raise over €4000 for the Mater Foundation. The lads also upheld their end of the bargain by running over 1000 miles combined. Fair play to all involved as it is a great amount raised and hard miles to run. The guys also wanted to mention their appreciation for the huge support they got from friends, family and the wider community.

When lockdown lifts we are raring to go to get back training. We also hope to continue with further fundraisers and campaigns over the summer months.

Johnstown FC is proud to announce Taylors of Johnstown as Senior sponsors.

Johnstown FC is delighted to announce Taylors Johnstown as the sponsors for the senior team this year and into 2021. It is a great collaboration with local business, as the club continues to strive to be at the heart of the local community. A huge thanks to John O’Brein and the Taylors team for their support at this time as well as the continued support of all the club’s sponsors.

The club has been able to purchase a new home and away kits for the senior teams with the sponsorship provided. On the home kits first outing the lads had a good 5-3 win against Trim Town, a good omen for things to come hopefully.

We hope that you continue to support local business like Taylors through these times and we promise there will be a continued collaboration with Taylors in the near future. If you call in for a pint and bite to eat in the near future we hope you see our kit hanging with pride of place in the bar.

Johnstown FC Seniors wrap up the group stage with a good win.

Our 1st team finished off their group campaign with a 5-3 win at home against Trim Town.

The visitors who had only 10 men led 2-1 at home time. The lads turned it around in the 2nd half and ran out 5-3 winners.

The Johnstown goals coming from Danny Reaney, Darren Finnegan and Blessed with a hattrick. The Taylors man of the match went to Adam Foy.

This leaves us in 3rd in the group, as about as well as have could be expected considering the strength of the teams that finished 1st and 2nd. We now await a draw for the quarter-final of the cup competition.
