The Donegal Women’s League Under-18 team are back in Inter-League action on Sunday when they travel to Eamonn Deacy Park to face Galway in their latest group game (kick-off 2pm).
Things are evenly poised in the group as Bríd McGinty’s team goes into the west.
These teams met each other last year with Shannon McBride scoring a brace of goals in a 2-1 win for Donegal at The Lakeside in Ballyshannon.
From last year’s team, McGinty can still call on the likes of Irish underage international Zoe Green (pictured above), Chantel Kelly, Aoife Page and Aine Deasley.
Donegal reached the semi-finals last year and lost out to MGL.
McGinty has plenty of experience within her ranks.
Green was a regular in the Irish Under-17 side in late 2015 and the Lagan Harps full-back is a key cog in the wheel.
Just last weekend, Neve Scanlon played in goals for the Republic of Ireland Under-15 Schools team in 7-1 win over Northern Ireland.
Catherine Grier, the Donegal Women’s League Under-16 Player of the Year in 2016, has also been around the international set-up, while Danielle McDevitt was capped by Ireland at Under-17 level last year.
Donegal began their group phase with a heavy 4-0 loss to Inishowen, but were awarded a win last month when Mayo were unable to travel.
Donegal Women’s League squad: Claire Friel, Neve Scanlon, Siobhan Sweeney, Eimear Sweeney, Niamh McDevitt, Michelle McDevitt, Aine Deasley, Chantel Kelly, Aoife Page, Zoe Green, Danielle McDevitt, Jodie Walker, Fiona Shovlin, Olivia McGinley, Catherine Grier, Aoife Kelly, Aisling Irwin, Mary B Gallagher.Tags:
