Local football starlet named in latest Irish underage squad

Kyle Conway in action here for St Patrick's Athletic.

Athlone youngster Kyle Conway has been selected as part of a 19-player Ireland Under 16 squad for two upcoming international friendlies against Bulgaria in Sofia.

Conway currently plays with St Patrick's Athletic, having previously lined out with St Joseph's in Athlone, before playing with Dublin-based clubs in the Dublin and District Schoolboy League. He was last year capped at Under 15 international level.

14 of Osam's squad is made up of SSE Airtricity League players, with the remaining five playing at clubs in Northern Ireland, England and Spain.

Speaking ahead of the team's trip to Bulgaria, Osam said he was excited to be working with a new group of players.

"Some of the squad were with Jason Donohue last year in the Under-15s, while others will get their first taste of international football.

"This age-grade is about developing players, and I look forward getting on the training pitch with the players over the coming week in Bulgaria."

Ireland's first match against Bulgaria takes place on September 11, with the second match taking place two days later.
