To Sinead, Caroline, Audrey and Sandra Anderson for all the help on the day

Big thanks to M.C for the day Eoin Sheridan and Adrian Finnegan for the photos and sorting out the medals for the kids, and to Walterstown for providing the hall.

Also to the managers whose work in the rain and cold sometimes goes unnoticed, but not by the club.

Thanks to everyone for all the help along the way

The club is looking forward to next year and providing football to all the players in the teams below and any new players who want to join our football family.

Johnstown FC’s big day out for FAI Cup Finals day

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.

Next up was the men’s final where Dundalk FC took on Cork City FC.  Dundalk were victorious at the final whistle and completed the league cup double with a 2-1 win over Cork City.

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.

Johnstown FC are delighted to announce our new training and coach education partner EI Sports.

Post from EI Sports today:

Having met with the club we could see the passion the committee had to take the club forward from a Player Development & Coach Development perspective.

We will now be launching a New Club Academy program in the coming months to support Player development for ages 7 to 13. Having seen the growth in our own Academy program on Wednesdays in Navan with players from Johnstown FC and having had players on our trips over the past 2 years it is great to be bringing the program now directly into the club.

Further Developing the Club Nursery program to expand from 2011s to 2014s Boys & Girls.

Launch a new Coach Education Mentorship Program starting next week which will see a Coach the Coach program , supporting coaches with Session planning, new session ideas and enhancing the development opportunities for all the players in the club. This will include our very successful Junior Coach Mentorship program which will be launched shortly also.

We wish to Thank the Committee & Chairman Kevin for partnering up with us and we look forward to supporting the club in its Development Goals.

Help Wanted

Your Club Needs You

Our Club works for our community with the help of a team of volunteers.  Without volunteers to help we would have no club and the kids would have no local football.

So now we are in need of more help.  We need someone who could manage a team and help bring them on a journey of learning, fun and lifelong friendship.  Sport is a fantastic way for children to learn and communicate.

Currently we are looking for managers for a second U15 team, U8 and U7.  You will need to give up a few hours a week, become Garda Vetted and complete a course in Child Welfare in Sport.

If you would like to become involved please email us at

Coaching Leagues

This week sees the return of the Coaching League games in the MDL and St Pats.

The Coaching League is non competitive and where our younger players learn all about the basics of the game.  We would like to remind everyone that attends the Coaching League of the following:

  • We encourage positive comments to the children but instruction should only come from their coach.   Please support your coach and cheer your children on.
  • This year there will be referees at all Coaching League games.  This referees are there to insure the rules on how small sided games should be played are adhered too  We ask that all Parents and Managers set a good example and do not question the Referee’s decision.  Also if the safety rules are not adhered too the referee must ask the player to leave the pitch.
  • All Players must wear shin guards.
  • Any player who needs glasses must not wear them on the pitch and they must wear protective Sports Goggles.
  • Photography or Videotaping is not allowed by anyone on the side lines.  The clubs can send their PROs as they are guardi vetted and they must introduce them selves to both managers and referees prior to taking photos
  • No league tables are recorded and scores are not recorded as they as this league is about learning.

Full set of rules for this league is available on the NECSL site here
Of Course the most important thing for us to say is welcome back to all our young players and enjoy the games !
