Treaty United goalkeeper Nicole Nix
TWO Limerick-based players have been included in the Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-16s squad who face Wales for two international friendly games this month.
Treaty United goalkeeper Nicole Nix and Katie Lawlee, of Ballingarry AFC, have been included in the Ireland squad for the double header of fixtures.
Head Coach Tom Elmes has assembled a strong group of players for what should be two tough tests as work continues on their development.
Six players called in were part of the Ireland Women’s Under-17 squad who won their three UEFA Women’s Under-17 European Championship qualifiers in Norway last month.
The majority of players in the squad were recently involved in EA SPORTS Women’s Under-17 National Underage League Finals, with Treaty United winning the League and Shelbourne claiming the Shield, while Cork City will take on Peamount United in the Cup.
