WU16s head to Scotland for double header

WU16s head to Scotland for double header

The Ireland Women’s Under-16s will visit Oriam, Scotland's Sports Performance Centre, to take on Scotland in two International Friendly games.

Head Coach Tom Elmes took a lot away from a recent friendly game against England in St. George's Park and will now close out the year in Edinburgh.

There are first call-ups for Shamrock Rovers defender Keelin Comiskey and US-born forward Caelan Bacon, while Heather Loomes is included after recently becoming Galway United's youngest ever player in the SSE Airtricity Women's Premier Division.

It has been a strong year for the Girls in Green at this level, but Elmes' group are just three games in together and there is still a lot of room for improvement; which is why these games against Scotland have been arranged.

Goalkeepers: Jenna Willoughby (Shelbourne), Laura Fanning (Shamrock Rovers)
Defenders: Abigail Bradshaw (Peamount United), Aibhlinn Cotter (Treaty United), Camille Adams (Charlton Athletic), Kate Jones (Treaty United), Keelin Comiskey (Shamrock Rovers), Michaela Hand (Athlone Town), Sophia Leonard (Arsenal)
