Tyler Toland and Amy-Boyle Carr are included in the Republic of Ireland Under-17 squad for two friendly internationals against Denmark next week.
St Johnston woman Toland is now a regular feature in the Irish senior squad, despite only just celebrating her 16th birthday last autumn.
Toland, who plays for Maiden City, is named alongside Boyle-Carr, who was on the senior panel for the recent double-header against Portugal.
Boyle-Carr made her debut for the Donegal senior ladies team on Sunday when she came on against Dublin in Letterkenny.
Ireland take on Denmark on Monday and Thursday of next week at the National Training Centre.
“It is going to be an important week for the squad as we prepare for our Elite Round fixtures,” said manager Colin Bell.
“We came through the qualification phase with wins over Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece and Romania, having not conceded a goal. It shows the quality we have in this young squad and I’m hoping to see even more improvement from the squad in these two friendly matches.
“Five players in the squad were also part of the senior squad for the friendly matches against Portugal and I’m hoping they can use their experience from spending time with the senior team to enhance the standard in training throughout the week.
“Denmark will provide quality opposition ahead of the Elite Round in March where we will need to be at our very best to progress past Germany, Iceland and Azerbaijan.”Tags:
