Our own RISSC (London) club member James McManus made his Republic of Ireland international debut in Tuesday afternoon’s U14 international against Holland in the AUL Complex, Clonshaugh. Ireland went down to a three one defeat with our goal being scored by James who turned fourteen last month. James, who plays his club football with St Kevin’s Boys, is the son of Pat McManus who has been a club member since September 1992, while James himself has been a member for approaching four years.
Our warmest congratulations go out to James with our very best wishes for the future.
The two sides met again at the same venue at noon on Thursday and while ETP National Co-Ordinator Niall Harrison utilised the remining players from his twenty two member squad, James was introduced as a second half substitute and contributed to the Ireland goal in their two one defeat.
