AMY BOYLE-CARR and Tyler Toland were to the fore today as the Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-16s won the UEFA WU16 Development Tournament in Buk, Hungary.
Boyle-Carr scored her second goal of the week in a 3-1 win over Hungry.
With Ireland having already beaten Slovakia 2-0 and Bosnia & Herzegovina 3-0 (a game in which Boyle-Carr also netted), it is Sharon Boyle’s Girls in Green who came away with the tournament win.
Boyle-Carr and Toland combined for the third goal today, late in the game, St Johnston’s Toland setting up Glenties’ Boyle-Carr for the finish.[adrotate group=”62″]
Tiegan Ruddy and Carla McManus had scored the other Irish goals while Ruddy was sent off in the first half.
Boyle was full of praise for her side, including the two Donegal girls.
Boyle-Carr is a student at St Columba’s Comprehensive in Glenties and lines out for Donegal Town FC while Toland plays for Maiden City Academy and attends Deele College in Raphoe.
“Both of our goals in the second half showed Individual quality from Carla McManus and Amy Boyle Carr,” the Irish manager said.[adrotate group=”37″]
“Players like those girls, Tyler Toland, Lauryn Grier and others were very good this week and I believe many of this squad can go into the trials with Dave Bell’s U17s full of confidence.
“We passed the ball well, worked it through thirds well and threatened to exploit their weaknesses that we had identified through our analysis. We looked to press them in the right areas and I felt we did that.
“Overall we’re delighted with how the week went. We came here to develop the players and for them to learn what it’s like to be away from home and adjust to this level of the game.”[adrotate group=”46″] Tags:
