Four Call-Ups

CONGRATULATIONS to Senan Devine, Alfie Gaston, Sam McClintock and Michael Harkin who have been called up to Northern Ireland’s Under-18 Schoolboys’ team to face Australia…

The international friendly is part of preparations for the annual Centenary Shield competition, which gets under way at the end of next month.

The game against a U18/U19 Australia side is due to be staged at the Blanchflower Stadium, home of Harland and Wolff Welders, on Monday (22 January), with a 4pm kick-off and a £5 entry fee.

Simon Nicks is managing the Northern Ireland Schools’ FA-run team – it is supported by the Irish FA Foundation – and he has chosen an 18-strong panel for the game against the Australians and two matches away to Jersey Select teams at the end of January.

Nicks is being assisted by coaches Richard Clarke and Neil McCaughey along with goalkeeping coach Eamon Curry.

The U18 Schoolboys are due to kick off their Centenary Shield campaign with a game against England at the Blanchflower Stadium on Friday 23 February (7pm start).

Coleraine FC wishes our four players and Northern Ireland the very best of luck for the fixture.
