The North West has named a 13-strong squad for the Under-17 Interprovincial series which gets under way this coming Sunday (30 June) against the NCU at Lisburn.
The format for this year’s renewal is a little different with a full week’s break between this game and the remainder of the tournament which takes place between Sunday 7th and Thursday 11th July.
There is a good representation of local sides in the squad with no fewer than 10 clubs having players involved, however Brigade’s Kyle Magee is a notable exclusion. The all-rounder hasn’t been named as he is considered likely to be included in the Ireland under-19 squad which is expected in the coming days.
The 17’s is loaded with domestic senior experience- all those named are currently involved with their clubs’ First XI squads and Coach Kevin Martin is aware that competition is once again likely to be very tough.
The squad in full is- Adam Boyd, Aidan Logue, Alex Boyd, Ben Mills, Conor Graham, Conor King, Levi Dougherty, Robbie Millar, Shar Khan, Stuart Kennedy, Tom Harpur, William Finlay, Tommy Orr.
