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.

Football is coming Home

Johnstown Fc is delighted to announce that we will be returning to the people’s park to train some of the underage teams.

It has been a long time coming and we would like to thank Alan Lawes and JPP for all their hard work in getting this lined up.

This coming Sunday we will have our Academy training in the park from 12PM. It will be great to see the kids of Johnstown playing in their own community. If you are passing by come and show your support.

RIP Mikey

It is with great sadness our own Mikey Leddy has passed away this afternoon, the tragic event that has happened in the last 48 hours has shocked us all. 

We would ask that everyone remembers Mikey for the champion he was and his fighting spirit. He will be with us in our minds and spirit forever.

Johnstown FC had a great day today for FAI Cup finals day at the Aviva Stadium.

Johnstown FC was well represented on the day with a great contingent traveling up by bus to the games. We were also represented in an official capacity with players from the girl’s u13 team selected as ball girls for the Women’s final and players from the boy’s u13s and u11s team as ball boys for the Men’s final.

Up first was the women’s final contested by Wexford Youths vs Peamount Utd. Wexford Youths were 1 – 0 victors on the day completing the double.

We had a helping hand from the wider Johnstown community providing some sustenance for the group, thanks to Smiths Supervalu and for providing snacks for the group and Dublin bus for the transport.

Days out like this are of huge benefit to the football club and help grow the sense of pride and community within the club. A huge thanks must go out to all parents and coaches that helped out on the day and made it so enjoyable. In particular, a huge debt of gratitude must be paid to John O’Brien who organised the day out from its inception.

Everyone had a very enjoyable day out and here’s to more in the future.
