Two young Finn Harps players have been selected on the Republic of Ireland U15 squad for an international tournament in Spain.

Luke McGlynn and Conor Campbell are included in the 20-man squad named by Jason Donohue.

Over the space of five days in late January and early February, Ireland will play Spain, the Netherlands and Hungary at the Pinatar Arena.

“We had an assessment game leading in before Christmas. The four lads did really well and deserve this opportunity,” said Donohue.

Despite the majority of the players being in their off-season, Donohue has been delighted with the players’ physical preparations.

“Communication with the clubs has been key. I’ve been in conversation with the club coaches, just to get the players on programmes. We wont be using the players’ fitness as an excuse in Spain.”
