Congratulations to young defenders Paddy Burns and Caolan Marron on again being selected for the Northern Ireland U-19 and U-21 squads respectively. Paddy is part of the U-19s who are due to take part in a four-team preparation tournament being held in the Province over the next few weeks. All of the Northern Ireland games will take place at MVP: versus Norway on Tuesday 12th (kick off 5:30 pm) and versus Portugal Friday 15th and Germany Monday 18th (both 7:30 kick offs). Remember admission is free to all of these games.

Caolan joins up with the U-21 squad for their upcoming home fixtures: v Hungary on Thursday 14th in a Friendly at Ferney Park, Ballinamallard and v Romania on Tuesday 19th in a UEFA U-21 Euro 2021 Qualifier at Ballymena Showgrounds. Caolan is joined in the squad by former team mate, Bobby Burns, who is currently on loan with Newcastle Jets in Australia and ex-Academy player, Harry Robinson.

We wish both squads all the best in their forthcoming fixtures.
