Newry City AFC are delighted to announce that John McGovern has been called up to the Northern Ireland U19 squad for their forthcoming NI International training camp next week.
NCAFC Manager Darren Mullen commented “This is a terrific honour for John, his family and the club but one that’s well deserved. His performances this season for a lad of 16 have been of a really high standard and were bound to attract attention at some stage. I spoke to Stephen Frail who manages both the NI U17s & U19s after our game on Saturday and he was impressed enough to want to see him at closer quarters. I’ve no doubt he’s well fit to perform at that level and hope that he continues his progress both with Newry and NI.”
The club would like to wish John & the rest of the NI squad all the best for next week as they meet both Liverpool U19 and Swansea U19 at Lilleshall.
