THREE DONEGAL girls will be part of the Republic of Ireland Under-17 squad for a friendly international against Northern Ireland this afternoon.
The game, at the Ballymena Showgrounds, kicks off at 3pm and has been organised as part of the NI Super Cup, formerly known as the Milk Cup.
Ireland Under-17 head coach Dave Bell has called up Amy Boyle-Carr, Tyler Toland and Danielle McDevitt to the squad for this fixture.
Boyle-Carr and Toland have been a regular feature on international squads this year.[adrotate group=”43″]
Glenties woman Boyle-Carr, who lines out for Donegal Town FC, and St Johnston’s Toland, who is attached to Maiden City, won the UEFA WU176 Development Tournament in Hungary.
There, they defeated Slovkia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Hungary.
They were also part of the Irish Under-15 squad that lost 1-0 to England in the final of the Inspiresport Bob Docherty Tournament in Wales.[adrotate group=”46″]
Toland is lining out for Sion Swifts Under-19s and just last week netted a hat-trick in a 3-2 win over Linfield that leaves the Sion side within touching distance of the League title.
Linfield led the game 2-0 with Caitlyn Rae and Amber Demster scoring, but Toland inspired a superb comeback.
Her first, a 25-yard cracker, was followed by a back post tap in and she bagged the hat-trick and the win when she beat the Linfield goalkeeper from the edge of the box.
McDevitt played for Ireland at Under-15 Schools level. The Donegal Town FC woman plays for Lagan Harps in the Donegal Women’s League and will also be hoping to get a slice of action in Ballymena.[adrotate group=”37″] Tags:
