Scott announces Women’s Under-17 squad for UEFA European Championship Qualifying round



Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-17 Head Coach James Scott has announced a 20-player squad for the UEFA Women’s Under-17 Championship Qualifying Round in Lithuania.
 

The Girls in Green will take on Albania (Tuesday, September 10th), Lithuania (Friday, September 13th) and Greece (Monday, September 16th) as part of the first round of qualifying as they look to take a step closer to next year’s tournament in Scotland.

 The WU17 squad includes players from 11 clubs and five new faces in Olivia Gibson (Cork City), Orlagh Fitzpatrick (Peamount United), Ellen Molloy (Thomastown United), Jenna Slattery (Fairview Rangers) and Laura Shine (Wilton United).

Speaking ahead of the games, Scott said: “I’m delighted with the squad of 20, we have four players in who are born a year early so that’s great experience for them. We’ve got a good balance and there’s four girls in the squad who played with the Under-17s last year, it was a great experience for them and now coming in this year they know what to expect. 

“We have a group of talented players coming through and we’re all really looking forward to heading out Lithuania.”
