Kieran came along to our u16’s Future Stars open sessions on a Friday night in January 2022. Working with Football Development Officer and Former Rotherham Utd player Jamie Yates at Parkgate Astro, playing in regular showcase games and attending our training sessions. This lead Kieran making the decision to join our Rotherham United Sports College programme full time in September 2022.

Football Development Officer and Former Rotherham Utd player Jamie Yates Said

“I am really pleased for Kieran, who this week has had a fantastic opportunity to join our U18s set up for training alongside the rest of the  youth team squad. Kieran has shown a professional attitude and strong mentality since joining us in September, Whilst showcasing his football ability in recent weeks and months and I was delighted to watch him join in with top quality players on Tuesday morning.

Since joining the community trust just over a year ago it was always my immediate aim to make our environment as professional as possible whilst ensuring each player at different levels of ability enjoy the experience of training and playing on a full time basis.

Id like to thank Joe Skarz (U18 Lead Coach) for taking a keen interest in our players and I am confidant Kieran can lead by example as we hope to send more and more players from our programme across to the academy.

Kieran now studies Sports Development Coaching right here at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. What an example he is setting for others to show what you can achieve here at Rotherham United.
