Elmes selects squad for Switzerland double header
Head Coach Tom Elmes has selected a squad for two important games that will serve as good challenges for his squad, who recently took on Wales.
Two games - and two wins - over Wales in Newport was a positive start for this new group of players, whose development will continue over the coming year.
Elmes, and his staff, wanted to test the players again and that is why Switzerland were invited to Dublin for two games at Home Farm FC in Whitehall.
There are first-time inclusions for Finley Newell, who plays in the United States with Lonestar Soccer Club, and Libby Bermingham, who has been impressing with Liverpool.
