Profile:
Signed from Tynecastle Boys Club.
Joining the club officially in season 2019-2020, after signing a full time contract Kieran Ngwenya was a regular in 2018-2019 for the U18s, having a hugely impressive season, whilst also continuing his full-time studies.

"Kieran is from Edinburgh and starred for Tynecastle Boys Club. The left-back was a Scottish Juvenile Youth player, and Scottish Cup Youth finalist. We had watched Kieran for several years before bringing him in last season. His education was important to him so we supported though his schooling last year and he now joins us full-time. He has massive potential, as he showed last season when he played for the U18s.
"He is a left-back who is tall and defends well but can also get forward. His pace is frightening, and he makes good use of the ball. A tremendous athlete, his maturity and footballing ability mean he could go very far in the game, as could all our new recruits if they work hard and show the correct attitude.
"We were so pleased to get Kieran here, as a number of top clubs were keen to get him but Kieran was pleased with the support he received from the club in terms of helping him with his education. It's great for us to get such a highly rated player from Edinburgh, under the noses of the big teams in the central belt. Eddie Smeaton is our scout in the Lothian and southern Scotland and is a very well-respected figure in the area and he knew Kieran well as he had coached him in the past. We are always looking to get the best players we can throughout the whole of Scotland."
Neil Simpson, 2nd September 2020 keiran made his first team debut against Ross County in December 2020 and on 25th March 2021 was sent out on loan to Cove Rangers for the remainder of the season.
