O’Connell Signs For Shels

Former Kilcock Celtic player Adam O’Connell has signed for Shelbourne football clubs U19s.

O’Connell, who was last year part of Longford Town’s U19 panel under the guidance of fellow Kilcock man Brendan Rooney (coach) has rekindled that partnership following this move to Tolka Park.

Rooney joined Wayne Groves on the management team at Shels late last year and the pair continuing to piece together their desired squad. 

O’Connell has joined at the same time as fellow youngsters Cian McGarry and Gabi Aghinita.

Brilly, who captained the South Dublin side for the majority of last season, will now prepare for his 3rd campaign and look to build on his already record number of appearances at Cabo. 

The Kilcock native has progressed steadily during his two years, helping his side finish one position better off in season two in comparison to their maiden year in the League of Ireland, where they finished bottom of the pile. 

Brilly went on to represent his country midway through 2016, becoming a permanent fixture for Ireland’s University and College’s team.

Rooney Joins Shelbourne

Kilcock man Brendan Rooney has joined Wayne Groves coaching team at Shelbourne FC u19s for the coming League of Ireland season.

Groves was tonight announced as manager of Shels promising underage team, with Rooney once again joining up with him, with the pair having previously worked together last season, rather succesfully, at Longford Town u19s. 

Speaking to an excited Rooney tonight, the Down native said; “I am delighted to be getting involved at a club with such a strong history as Shelbournes’. They may have gone through a difficult time of late but in my opinion they are a sleeping giant. A bit similar to Leeds United at the moment. Only a matter of time before they are back in the big time and I am itching to get going, to play my part in that.” 

Rooney added; “I am grateful that I am getting the chance to work alongside Wayne again as we had a great partnership at Longford Town last season.”
