It is with deep regret and sorrow that we report the tragic news of the sudden death of one of our ex-players, Chris Rooney (31) , last Sunday afternoon on the 21st March. Chris played for Leicester Celtic at under age and Senior Level for many years. He is fondly remembered by his team mates, managers, and coaches, as a dedicated and talented player who was deeply passionate about his football. We extend our sympathies, from all the Leicester Celtic Community, past and present, to his Dad, Brothers, Keith and Gavin, his fiancée Katie, and all his extended family and friends.

We are delighted to announce that Leicester Celtic FC and Noggin Sports have teamed up in an effort to raise awareness of mental health in our community, which affects so many people in both their daily lives and in their sporting lives.

‘Noggin Sport’ is run by two brothers who are dedicated to raising awareness of mental health in sport. They are a Community Interest Company, where the profits they make go straight into supporting mental health awareness projects across Ireland and the UK.
“Our aim is to help people and make people realise that it’s ok to talk about how they feel, that mental health and mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone has different experiences but at some point or another, everyone goes through tough times. It’s about creating a community where everyone is part of something” (Kieran Joyce of Noggin Sport)
The club have ordered a limited edition run of LCFC Noggin beanies/hats that can be pre-ordered either online through Clubforce and a small number available through the club shop. All monies raised will go back into the club which provides an outlet for so many in our community, with a donation also to be made to one of the great charities listed below.
