Attention all student footballers playing at a high standard in Northern Ireland.
The World University Games is a fantastic competition for our elite student athletes to take part in and Ireland will be sending Men’s and Ladies Football teams to the next Games in South Korea July 2015. The competition takes place every two years, the last one having been in Kazan, Russia in July 2013.
Team Ireland will be made up of Irish students, north and south who are studying at Universities and Colleges in Ireland or in other parts of the world.
There will be 16 International teams in the Men’s Football competition. Team manager for the second time will be Dublin man, Danny Crowley, who will be hoping to see his side equal, or better, its best ever 5th place finish achieved last time out in Kazan in 2013.
The standard of competition is very high and Danny is keen to get the message about the competition out to any students playing at a high level in Northern Ireland, e.g. NIFL Premiership, Championship or top level Intermediate Football. A number of trial games will be held over the next few months before the 20 man squad is finalised.
It is important to note that players should register their interest by completing the registration forms on the Student Sport Ireland website (www.studentsport.ie). Two passport sized photographs are required and completed forms should be returned to Student Sport Ireland by 28th November.
This is a great opportunity and more information can be got from Danny Crowley at firstname.lastname@example.org, Denis Clarke at email@example.com or the Student Sport Ireland website (www.studentsport.ie).
Congratulations and best wishes for a most successful and enjoyable trip to Moldova with the N.I. Eastern regions team to Daniel Culbert. The team, managed by Harry McConkey, will play games against Ukraine, Spain and Moldova
