The squad fly out to Poland on Saturday, November 12th ahead of two matches against Poland as the young squad get their first experience of international football.

The first game will take place in Lomza, Poland on Tuesday, November 15th with kick-off at 12pm followed by a second match in the same location on Thursday, November 17th with kick-off at 4pm.

Under 15s manager Jason Donohue said: “We’re excited. It is a great opportunity for these young footballers to taste international football for the first time and test themselves on the highest stage.

“We’ve done extensive work over the last couple of months, scouting up and down the country at clubs and within our highly successful Emerging Talent Programme.

“We brought in 34 players for a training camp at the end of October for three days where we had a good chance to assess the players. The quality was extremely high but we were then able to select a squad of 18 players for the two fixtures.

“We want to use these two matches to continue to implement the game plans and footballing ethos that we’ve established within our Emerging Talent Programmes but also to test the players against top opposition like Poland as we look to develop players for the future.”
