With the Regions Cup done Irish Amateur International boss Gerry Davis can now pick players from across all the leagues to wear the green.
The UEFA Regions Cup only allows for a certain section of any given country to compete and for Ireland and the Ulster, Munster area’s won the right to represent Ireland in the last two installments.
Now the focus is on the Irish Amateur select and Davis has a wider range of players to chose from and he has named an interesting squad to play Northern Ireland in a friendly set to take place on October 10.
While the former Killester United manager has kept faith in some of the players that have served him well in Regions Cup action he has also brought in some talents from other leagues, namely the LSL.
Bluebell’s front man Shane Stritch is part of the 18 as is a player Davis took to Killester Stephen Chambers, the exciting Darren Craven of Malahide United also makes the squad.
Davis hasn’t just looked at the top leagues and seems to picking players he fancies rather than players from certain clubs Liam Dwyer, who plays LSL second tier with Dublin Bus was selected, Killian Duffy’s form in Maynooth University Town’s amazing FAI Intermediate Cup winning season has been rewarded with a call up and Intermediate new boys and LSL Senior 1B side Kilbarrack have representation in the form of Alan Clarke, while Liam Brady, brother of Robbie Brady and former underage international gets a call up after his move to Crumlin.
