About Us

The early nineties witnessed a big increase in interest in Junior Soccer all over Ireland and many people in the County were of the opinion that Kildare should follow the example of Wexford, Meath and Carlow in forming their own Junior Football League. Heretofore Kildare based clubs were affiliated to Dublin based Leagues, mainly the Leinster Junior League (Dublin and Counties sections), The Leinster Senior League and the Amateur Football League.
In early 1994 a group of people consisting of Michael Casey, Tony Lumsden (RIP), Regina Casey, Frank Tobin, Jack Connolly, Peter O'Neill, James Langton and Pat Ryan all of whom who were involved in Kildare Clubs that were competing in the Leinster Junior League decided to investigate the level of interest in the project. Well attended meetings were held in Allenwood and Newbridge and it became apparent that there was a broad agreement that the idea should be pursued. Following on from those meetings a general meeting was held in Newbridge Town Football Club in March 1994 and a Committee which was charged with the task of formulating a proposal to the Leinster Football Association to formally launch.
