    Under-18 Squad

    I see that there's only one home-based player in Brian Kerr's squad for next month's invitational U-18 tournament in Japan - Barry Moran (Galway United).

    Not exactly a wealth of talented strikers in the works, is there? Just three forwards, who play for Exeter, Stockport and Galway. After Quinn retires, we're fairly screwed...

    Good to see someone called Fiachra in the squad. Should screw up some commentators, that one.

    So for those of you who are worried that we're thin up front now...

    Ouch...on the upside, losing 3-0 to Belgium hasn't always been a sign of catastrophe.

    Eh...look up the date of the post being replied to maybe?

    The guys in the original thread are retiring now.

    Though with the age profile of our squad, that means they may yet have a future...

    8 nil loss to the Dutch is a bit nasty in fairness but this side is short of alot of regulars. http://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/irela...by-netherlands

    Good to see McAuley involved at underage level again. Is that Tee's first call up?

    Just noticed Ciaran Dunne has a few appearances for Falkirk, and is listed as Scottish on Wikipedia

    Lots of new faces. McMahon, Clarke, tee and Collins have never been involved before. Kayode hasn't been involved much either since he went to rotherham. Pretty sure Dunne played under 17 for Scotland. With no shiels included likely he has rejoined Scots?

    First call up for Conor Tee and Jack James? English-born lads at Leicester and Luton, respectively. Is that McAuley's first call up in a while?

    Dunne was in an under 19 squad in February for us.

    Not that I've an issue with it but that team appears slightly more reliant on lads born outside of Ireland than some of our other underage teams. James, McMahon, Collins, Dunne, Clarke and Tee making up the majority of the team with all born in England, aside from Dunne (Scotland).

    The 18s are just players who are too old for 17s and not good enough for 19s or, in Bolger's case, suspended from the 19s. I wouldn't worry too much about the make-up of the squad.
