Seán fits bill for U-15s

Wexford People - - SPORT -

THERE WAS fur­ther de­served recog­ni­tion for one of the county’s bright­est young soc­cer prospects re­cently when Seán Fitz­patrick fea­tured in two games with the Repub­lic of Ire­land Un­der-15 squad.

The Sham­rock Rovers and Wex­ford F.C. per­former lined out for the open­ing 55 min­utes when the boys in green de­feated home side Poland 1-0 in a friendly, and he left a last­ing im­pres­sion.

In­deed, it was from his cross in the 25th minute that winger Ben Quinn found him­self free at the back post to head home the win­ner.

Poland turned the ta­bles a cou­ple of days later with a 4-2 vic­tory, and on that oc­ca­sion Seán re­placed Conor Camp­bell with half an hour re­main­ing.

Mean­while, the Ir­ish De­fence Forces are in the Nether­lands this week for the World Mil­i­tary Games qual­i­fiers, and there is a strong Wex­ford rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the squad.

Sham­rock Rovers pair Ricky Fox and Chris Kenny are among seven mid­field­ers called up for ac­tion, while Tony Smith from Cur­r­a­cloe United is one of the four for­wards.
