Another Derrylaughlin man, Aidan is the younger brother of Paddy and has been with the club since the mid-2000s and in that time has established himself as a very classy and effective defender.

Aidan’s talents have been recognised by London at junior level and his has represented the county on a number of occasions, including the 2005 All Ireland semi-final against Meath.

Quietly spoken and thoughtful in his actions, Aidan nevertheless manages to deliver huge performances time and again for the club.

Aidan was senior team player / manager in 2018.


The youngest of the Lynott brothers, Patrick made his debut for the club in 2003 and by 2004 was a member of the London senior team, playing against Galway and Dublin in that year's Championship matches.

Explosively fast, blessed with great balance and a keen eye for goal, Patrick has been a key component to St Clarets' attacking options over the past number of years as well as being responsible for the fitness training of the side.

Matthew is a product of the club's youth system, having first joined the club as an Under 10 in a team that was managed by Denis McCarthy. Despite playing a great deal of his under age football with other clubs, notably Tir Chonaill Gaels and Parnells, Matthew had no hesitation in returning to his first club once his underage football was over.

Thus far, Matthew's defensive talents have helped to earn him London minor and U-16 Championship medals and since his debut for the Clarets senior side against Heston when he was 16, Matthew has proven to be a player with no shortage of ability.

Always keen to listen to advise from older players, Matthew is particularly grateful for the advice he has received through the years from his former under age mentor Denis McCarthy as well as current senior player Mossie Colleran.

Matthew's long-term ambitions with St Clarets are to help them re-establish themselves as a senior club side in London.

Being the son of club chairman John Kelly, the godson of club legend Martin Hession and the nephew of former players Mattie Kelly, Kieran Kelly and John Collins, Luke's DNA was always going to ensure he played a part in the St Clarets story.

Having made his debut for the senior team when he was 16, Luke has gradually forced his way into contention for many games and his versatility has been key to this, with Luke being as comfortable between the sticks as he is out the field.

Blessed with tremendous stamina, Luke should prove to be a valuable asset to the club in years to come.

When Mick Keane first approached Tyrone man Paddy about playing football for St Clarets, little did the Derrylaughlin clubman realise, that almost a decade later, he would have becomes such an integral part of the club, nor that he would be calling Mick his father-in-law!

Paddy was was one of the first of an invasion of east Tyrone men to arrive at the St Clarets in the early 2000s, and was soon followed, firstly by his brother Aidan,  and then the likes of Paul and Michael Rouse, as well as Paddy and James Quinn. Though many have since moved on, Paddy remained and has become an integral part of the club both on and off the field.

Engaging, energetic and enthusiastic, Paddy will always put his neck on the line in the pursuit of excellence for his team and the admiration and respect that he has for key club members like Martin Hession, Tony Murphy and Colm Lynott, proves that he has a full understanding of what St Clarets is all about.

An Intermediate Championship winner in 2004, Paddy continues to provide excellent service to the club, both on and off the field.


Conor is the latest in a line of young players to emerge from our youth system. He made is debut as an 18-year old and is in regular contention for a starting berth, along with his older brother Matthew.



Shane became the youngest member of the senior panel in 2013 when he progressed through from the club's Under‐16 ranks. In the past two years he has progressed on to become a regular member of the London senior football panel, making his National League debut in 2015.

Having joined the club in the mid-2000s, the young forward has shown tremendous potential throughout his youth football, under the guidance of Colm Lynott and his father Mick.

That youth career saw him win many of the honours available including minor and under‐16 Leagues and Championships in London, as well as an All Britain title with the club at Under‐14 level and U-18 level. Further to that, he has also represented London at both Under‐14 and Under‐16 grades.

Shane's progress is a welcome return to form for the club and he follows in the footsteps of some very illustrious names in the club's history, including his former youth manager Colm, as well as current senior team mates Paul Myers, Steven Sherry, Luke Kelly and Matt Healy.

Hopefully Shane's career with the club will be as long and successful as his mentor's.



London born Alfie progressed on to the senior team in 2014, on the back of a hugely rewarding youth career with St Clarets. In 2015 he made his National League debut for the London senior team.
