Former Sunderland and Cork City Winger signs for the 2023 Season

Kerry man Sean Kennedy has put pen to paper and has signed to play for Kerry FC in the 2023 SSE Airtricity First Division campaign.

Sean, who hails from Annascaul, will return home in 2023 to line out for Kerry FC in the club’s inaugural season at senior level in the League of Ireland.

Having played underage football in Kerry and for Tralee Dynamos, Sean made the move cross-channel to play for former Premier League side Sunderland, making some 11 appearances for the North England sides Under 18 team.

Kennedy returned to Ireland in 2021 where he played for both Cork City’s under-19 and senior sides before finishing up with the Rebel Army at the end of 2021.

Sean also donned the international jersey for Ireland at Under 15 level.

Speaking on the announcement, Sean said “I’m delighted to sign for Kerry FC after taking a career break for the past year. I can’t wait to get started and looking forward to playing back home” He added “When I got the call from Billy I couldn’t turn it down. I’m really looking forward to playing in front of all the fans and getting all the support we can here at home in Kerry”

First team manager Billy Dennehy said, “I’m delighted to have secured the services of Sean for 2023. He is a huge asset to us and has proven he can compete at this level of the game”. Billy added “The squad is beginning to take shape and training seasons are intensifying as we begin to take our preseason sessions to the next level”
