Kilmacanogue ‘out of the wilderness’ and back into Junior B football

Kilmacanogue will be making their return to the Junior B football championship for the first time in four years, the club has announced.

Kilmac last fielded a team in the division back in 2015, after which dwindling numbers forced the club to focus their energy on heir intermediate footballers.

However, in a statement on Monday afternoon, the club revealed that they would be reentering the Junior B tier in 2019.

“After a few years in the wilderness, we are delighted to announce that we will be fielding a Junior B team in 2019. This will give us the opportunity to blood our stars of tomorrow and give some of our adult panel a chance to impress and get more minutes in the legs.”

Kilmac have brought in Kevin Molloy to the role of manager of the junior side. The 58-year-old has a history with the club, having played for them at full-forward, before claiming victory for Kilmacanogue over Roundwood in the Parish Punch-Up in 2013 — earning the moniker ‘Big-Bang’ in the process.

Molly will be joined by selector Andrew Fitzsimons, as well as kitman, administrator and statistician John Flynn.

The junior Bs will be Kilmac’s second team in the county championship, with the club also represented at intermediate level.

Kilmacanogue will be holding a management meeting on Thursday night at 9:15pm, at which those with an interest in playing for the club are welcome to attend.
