WU16s arrange double header with Faroe Islands

WU16s arrange double header with Faroe Islands

A new squad has been selected for a new campaign for the Ireland Women's Under-16s as they take on Faroe Islands in two International Friendly games.

Megan Smyth-Lynch continues to lead the team as they welcome in a new group of players in their first introduction to international football.

Having won a UEFA Development Tournament in Serbia earlier this year, the WU16s will want to maintain the momentum built up by the 2022/23 group.

Goalkeeper Laura Fanning, who saved the all-important penalty in Serbia last April, is included in this new-look squad that will train at the FAI National Training Centre.

Part of the training camp will include two games against Faroe Islands - the first of which will take place in Drogheda with the second in Home Farm.
