Logue names U-18 squad for Europeans

Irish U-18 coach Mary Logue announced her 18-player panel to travel to Nivelles in Belgium for the European Youth Nations Championships 2009 in early July.

Speaking about the squad, Logue said: “Following difficult decisions, given the quality of players in the training panel, I am very pleased to announce the squad of 18.

"The commitment shown by the players has been fantastic to date, especially given that a number of the training panel are currently preparing for exams. I look forward to fine-tuning our preparation over the next five weeks which will be helped by our international games against England in Manchester and against Scotland in Dublin in late June."

Ireland will compete in an initial group phase against England, France and Belgium before entering the crossover phases with Holland, Germany, Lithuania and Russia.
