Posted on Updated on

The Republic of Ireland schools international side ended their Centenary Shield campaign with a disappointing 5-2 defeat to England at Whitehall last night.

The Irish led 2-1 at the break with strikes from Evan Murphy and John Martin but England fought back strongly to score four second half goals to claim the win.

Derry City U19 pair Connor Gormley, a pupil at Loreto Community School Milford and Sean McBride of St. Columba’s College Stranorlar made second half appearances coming off the bench on 68 and 75 minutes respectively.

Northern Ireland had a comprehensive 3-0 win over Wales on Wednesday evening to secure the 2017 title but they must wait for the result of next week’s encounter between England and Wales to see if they share the trophy or win it outright.

Gormley and McBride will now turn their attention back to the Under-19 league and step up preparations for their next fixture which is away to bottom of the table Athlone Town next weekend.

    Hi Lads, It was John Martin who scored the second Irish goal not Paul his twin brother who is the side’s goalkeeper. Keep up the good work.
