Gavin Kilkenny

Position:
Midfielder
Date of birth:
1st February 2000
Nationality:
Republic of Ireland
Height:
Unknown
Date signed:
2nd August 2019

Irish midfielder Gavin Kilkenny has made eye-catching progress since joining AFC Bournemouth as a 16-year-old in August 2016.

He moved into the club's under-21 squad after serving a two-year scholarship in the under-18s and was quickly elevated to the first team in the summer of 2019.

Kilkenny was rewarded for his exploits with a new long-term contract, which he signed in December 2019.

Raised in Beaumont, a suburb of northern Dublin, Kilkenny started out at St Kevin’s Boys, the youth football club whose graduates include Robbie Keane, Damien Duff, Jeff Hendrick and Robbie Brady.

He left home at 16 to join the Cherries, having excelled as a youngster at Gaelic football and hurling.

Kilkenny signed his first professional contract in April 2018 and penned an extension at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Capped by Republic of Ireland at under-15, 16, 17 and 19 level, Kilkenny featured in the Cherries' pre-season friendlies against Girona, Brentford and Lyon in 2019.

He was named man of the match by the sponsors after scoring in the 3-0 win against Lyon in August 2019.

Kilkenny is an integral part of the Republic of Ireland under-21 squad and had six caps to his name, as at December 2019.
