Trophy Pics!

Season Starts with Win!

Congratulations to the Bhoys for a solid start to the season. With strong ball movement, consistent team communication, and solid finishing, Celtic began the season with a satisfying win over the Wizards. A late Wizards goal prevented the shut out and gave their fans something to cheer about, but the result was never in question after the Bhoys raced to a five-goal advantage at the half. The route was on as that advantage doubled in the first 15 minutes of the second half, but it was great to see the team continue to focus on team play and smart possession through the end of the game.

The next opponent for Celtic is still unknown as the Fall Kick-Off Classic still hasn't announced the scheduled for the 8/28-8/29 tournament. However, with another week of practice to improve as a team, it's safe to say the Bhoys will head into the tournament with positive momentum.

Coaching Staff
Coach Kewley

Head Coach: Kevin Kewley

Wichita Celtic Football Club has been fortunate to have Kevin Kewley as our Head Coach since 2005. 

Early Career 

He brings a wealth of playing and coaching experience, both in the States and abroad.   As a young man of 16 living in Liverpool, England, Kevin signed for Liverpool Football Club as an apprentice, and signed as a professional with them at 17.  

NASL Dallas Tornado

In 1977 he came to the States on loan to the NASL Dallas Tornado and signed permanently with them in 1978.  Kewley made 95 appearances for the Tornado, and scored 16 goals. 

Wichita Wings

In 1980, he was traded to the Wichita Wings of the MISL.  During his tenure with the Wings, Kewley (known to his fans as “The Tiger”) made 360 appearances and scored 113 goals.  Kevin was the 16th highest scorer in the MISL in 1980-81.  He was named Player/Asst. Coach in 1989 and retired in 1990.  He was honored at that time by having his #8 Wings Jersey officially retired.  He returned to the Wings organization in 1995 as assistant coach and was named Head Coach in 1998. 

Pratt Community College

Throughout his time in Wichita, Coach Kewley has coached numerous club teams in and around Wichita.  Many of his players have gone on to play and/or coach soccer at higher levels.  In December, 2009, Pratt Community College appointed Kewley as Head Men’s Soccer Coach, charged with building the program from the ground up.  Kevin’s association with Pratt, as well as his involvement with Wichita soccer, is an exciting opportunity for Kansas players to have the possibility to be able play soccer at a collegiate level while receiving a quality education. 

Asst Coaches for U14 team: Brad Emanuel and Phil Sueper
