Westport United is delighted to announce that two members of the U.14 squad has been called up to the Republic of Ireland U.14 squad by manager, Niall Harrison.
Goalkeeper, Conor Walsh and midfielder, Daniel Kelly both made the final squad for the upcoming international friendlies against The Netherlands in Dublin. Both have been very influential players at club level and played an integral role in helping the U.14 team reach the semi final of the Skechers SFAI U.14 Cup.
It's not very often that Westport United have players called up to the full Republic of Ireland squads at any level and this is the first time this has happened at U.14 level. The first Westport United footballer to win a Republic of Ireland schoolboys cap was Sean McLoughlin back in 1956.
Both Conor and Daniel will be in the squad for the matches against The Netherlands on Tuesday 9th April at the AUL Complex with kick off at 2:30 and also in the same venue on Thursday 11th April with kick off at 12:00 noon.
Westport United would like to extend its congratulations to Conor Walsh and Daniel Kelly and their families on their big news and would like to wish both of them well in their call ups.
