International Honours

Jay McEveley’s FIFA World Youth Championships will be over this weekend following England’s failure to qualify, having lost their first two games they now only have one game left, before they return. Meanwhile Rovers central defender John Fitzgerald’s Repubic of Ireland look like qualifying to the next round if they get a point against Mexico on Friday.

Paul Gallagher’s step up to the first team has coincided with his call up to the Scotland Future Squad, that play Turkey next week.
