Un­der 21 squad an­nounced

The Oban Times - - Sport -

FOL­LOW­ING on from the North Un­der 21 v South Un­der 21 game at Bal­lachul­ish last Satur­day, Scot­land un­der 21 head coach, Garry Reid, has se­lected 23 play­ers who will now go for­ward to form a pro­vi­sional train­ing squad be­fore fi­nal se­lec­tion is made for the forth­com­ing Scot­land Un­der 21 v Ire­land Un­der 21 shinty/ hurl­ing fix­ture that will take place in In­ver­ness on Oc­to­ber 24

Reid has taken into ac­count the num­ber of fix­tures that some play­ers still have to play in the run up to the end of the sea­son and, as such, has named a larger squad ini­tially be­fore whit­tling it down to the fi­nal squad of 19.

Garry Reid, in his sec­ond year as head coach, is happy with the process so far. He said: ‘The North v South en­counter proved to be a re­ally close-fought con­test, with a re­ally high stan­dard of play and a fast tempo to the game. There are a lot of good qual­ity young play­ers out there to choose from and they have cer­tainly made it ex­tremely dif­fi­cult for the coach­ing team to make their fi­nal se­lec­tion.

‘Given that this sea­son will run right up to the in­ter­na­tional fix­ture this year we have named a larger squad at this time to take that into ac­count, and we will re­duce the squad fur­ther fol­low­ing the sec­ond train­ing ses­sion.’
