Hayes fly­ing it for Rams U-21s

In form ahead of Ir­ish se­lec­tion

Bray People - - SPORT - DANIEL GOR­MAN

WITH Derby County push­ing for pro­mo­tion in the Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship and Paul Doolin keep­ing tabs be­fore nam­ing his Repub­lic of Ire­land U-19 squad for the Elite phase of the Euro's next month, Dy­lan Hayes has picked the right time of the sea­son to hit form with the Rams’ 21's/re­serves.

Hav­ing been the reg­u­lar right back since join­ing the academy in 2011, Derby have re­cently been util­is­ing the ver­sa­tile Bray man on the right and left wing, and his per­for­mances have led to reg­u­lar starts with the re­serves/21s side.

The last 10 days alone have seen him make the start­ing line-up against Birm­ing­ham City and Barns­ley and also in 2-0 win against Coven­try City on Thurs­day last at Six­fields.

Just last month, Hayes played the full 90 min­utes in a friendly clash for the first team against Minnestoa United in front of the on­look­ing Steve McClaren.

Fel­low Ir­ish in­ter­na­tional Con­nor Sammon also fea­tured as the Rams ran out 2-0 win­ners.

It is per­fect tim­ing for Hayes to im­press and he’ll be hop­ing to con­tinue his fine form in the run-in as Derby aim to re­turn to the Pre­mier League. Hayes, who turns 19 to­day, has come a long way since be­gin­ning his foot­ball ca­reer with Glen­cor­mac United at the age of five.
