Kilduff named on NASL team of the week

Ciaran Kilduff has been named on the NASL team of the week for the second time since his move Stateside from Dundalk to Jacksonville Armada FC.

Kilduff was a shoe in for one of the positions upfront following his brace away to New York Cosmos last Sunday night. He has been named alongside another former League of Ireland player Eamon Zayed. The pair once played together at Shamrock Rovers.

The Armada’s new number 9, Kilduff, gave his side the lead in The Big Apple after just 13 minutes before doubling their lead just before half time. He was also joined on the team by his team mate Kalen Ryden at centre half.  

The Cosmos did put some dampner on the night for the big Kilcock man, fighting back from 3-0 down to snach a draw (3-3) in added time.

Kilduff named on the NASL Team of the Week

Kilduff in action against New York Cosmos

Ciaran Kilduff has been named on the NASL Team of the Week following his side Jacksonville Armada FC’s 2-0 victory away to New York Cosmos on Sunday night.

Kilduff, who scored his sides’ second goal, was named in a front three on the leagues team of the week alongside two of his team mates, Caleb Patterson-Sewell in goal and Kalen Ryden in defence.

Kilcock man Kilduff was lining out in only his third game for the Florida State club and repaid his new manager’s faith by scoring his first goal for Jacksonville before half time, cementing their lead.

Armada have now won two of the three games Kilduff has been involved in, beating Indy Eleven FC 3-2 last week. 

This weekend’s return game with Indy has been re-scheduled due to the impending Hurricane IRMA. Stay safe Ciaran and all affected. 

Kilcock’s Robinson Looks To Break World Record

Kilcock athlete Paul Robinson will be part of a 4 man team that will attempt to break the 4×1 mile indoor record on St. Patrick’s day.

Robinson will be joined in the AIT Arena Athlone by John Travers, Sean Tobin and Eoin Everard as they look to beat the current record of 16:12.81, set only last month by an American quartet.

Based on their average individual time of 3:57.30 the men have a great chance of creating a piece of history come Friday evening.

The Pinewood native and his team mates are captained by two-time Irish Olympian and world indoor medalist Paul O’Donovan.

So if you can, get down to Athlone at 4pm this Friday and cheer Paul on. Entry is free.
