Ireland schools clash

Ireland Schools play the second match of this season’s Centenary Shield when they take on England at Northampton tonight (7pm).

This is a vital game for the defending champions, as a win would put their title hopes back on track.

Colhoun keeps faith in the same squad that he took to Wales and with David Bracken in fine form with goals in each of the opening two games, much will be expected of the Templeogue student.

Squad v England: Alan O’Riordan (St Patrick’s, Cavan & Shelbourne), Damien Kelly (St Kieran’s,Kilkenny & UCD), Darren Quigley (St Laurence’s College & UCD), Francis Rockett (CBS Tramore & Waterford United), Paul Courtney (St Fintan’s Sutton & Tolka Rovers), David Bracken (Templeogue College & Lourdes Celtic), Brian King (Ard Scoil Ris, Dublin & Stella Maris), Conor Sammon (Malahide CS & Cherry Orchard), Eoin McCormack (St Muredach’s Ballina & Sligo Rovers), James Chambers (Ard Scoil La Salle & Shelbourne), Daragh Joyce (St Kevin’s CBS & Tolka Rovers), Mark Leech (Templeogue College & UCD), Sean Lestrange (Drimnagh Castle & Shelbourne), Gerry Gill (Carndonagh CS & Derry City), Martin Reilly (Cavan VS & Home Farm), Thomas Hyland (Drimnagh Castle & Cherry Orchard), Aaron Deans (Drimnagh Castle & Lourdes Celtic), Brendan Kealy (Inter School Killorglin & Killarney Athletic).
