Un­der-19 team in elites

Wexford People - - SPORT -

DOIREANN FA­HEY of Wex­ford Youths Women was in­tro­duced in the 66th minute for Lu­cia Lo­bato as the Repub­lic of Ire­land Un­der-19 team cruised to an easy 7-0 win over Lithua­nia in their UEFA Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing round opener in Aly­tus on Tues­day.

The team qual­i­fied for the elite round with a game to spare when they went on to beat the Faroe Is­lands 3-0 in Mar­i­jam­pole on Fri­day, and this time Fa­hey and her club col­league, Aoife Slat­tery, were both brought on in the 78th minute.

Mean­while, Rochdale de­fender Ryan De­laney, that fine prospect from New Ross, has been in­cluded on Noel King’s 20-man squad for the UEFA Un­der-21 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing games away to Is­rael in Akko on Oc­to­ber 11, and Ger­many in Hei­den­heim five days later.
