St Mochtas have signed one of those LSL unsung hero’s and added further experience to their back line.
Considering he was a Reading youth and reserve team regular it’s strange to state Darren Stapleton is an under the radar player. Yet while he stood out for Cherry Orchard in recent seasons he was never one to get the hype of other both in the team or the league in which he performed.
However, Brian McCarthy must have impressed as he has brought Stapleton to the reigning Senior Sunday champions and increased his left back options.
The full back certainly comes with experience having moved to Reading in 2003 before signing for Kildare County in 2007. The attack minded full back impressed enough for the Lilly Whites to earn a move to Shamrock Rovers where he made 11 appearances.
A stint in the English non league and America followed before he joined LSL side Leixlip United. Stapleton teamed up with Declan Hevey at Cherry Orchard as was part of their promotion winning team, but has now moved to Mochtas.
