At the age of 13, Aiden O’Brien was a sharp shooting youngster who hit the winning goal to take his Isledon Wolves team into the final of a Camden youth cup. This month, now 24, Aiden scored the only goal for his latest team, The Republic of Ireland.
Centre forward Aiden, scored on his international debut although he has also been a regular scorer for Ireland U 21 with five goals in just 10 games.
In addition to his well-taken goal, O’Brien worked tirelessly and is predicted to be part of the international squad for the games against Wales and Denmark next month.
Aiden learned his trade as a youngster at Isledon where he played for five years until he was was scouted at the age of 14 by Millwall.
He was part of a victorious team that won silverware in the Camden and Islington Youth League and also the Harrow and District Premier League.
Aiden’s father, Dave, was one of Isledon Wolves founders when it started up in 2004 and continued with the club for the next decade. Dave said: “ I believe it’s only a matter of time before the new crop of players produces a player who can follow Aiden’s footsteps into professional Football.”
While not earning international honours, a series of Isledon players have been professionally scouted over the years. The latest is Franky Phillips, 10, who signed with Crystal Palace this season.
Isledon Wolves this season have five teams in the Camden and Islington Youth Football League and have a limited number of vacancies at u8, u10 and u11 age groups.
