SIX Saints In Paul Osam's Ireland U16 Squad

Saints' legend and Republic of Ireland Under-16 Head Coach Paul Osam has named a 20-man squad for the upcoming Under-16 UEFA Development Tournament in Israel, which includes SIX young Supersaints from our academy.

Goalkeeper Josh Keeley, defender Daragh Reilly and midfielders Jamie Doyle, Kyle Martin-Conway, Ben McCormack and Glory Nzingo are all included in a squad which will play against hosts Israel, Ukraine and Fiji over the space of five days along the Mediterranean coast in Shefayim.

"It has been a good season. The Development Tournament is a culmination of the work the lads have done throughout the year. We have players coming in for the first time, including lads that did very well at the Under-15s. It will be a big challenge, travelling to Israel," Osam, a former midfielder who was signed for the club under former Republic of Ireland Senior manager Brian Kerr, said.

"Israel are in our group for next season's Under-17 Qualifying Round, so that's an added bonus. The games are this November. It'll give me a great opportunity to see them up close, and pass on my knowledge to Colin O'Brien. This group will be playing them later this year."

Ireland begin their Development Tournament on Monday morning, against hosts Israel.
