Finn Harps’ U15 players Patrick McGarvey and Fionnan Coyle were members of the Republic of Ireland U15 squad who went down 2-0 to Poland at Whitehall in Dublin on Tuesday. The two sides will meet again on this Thursday as part of the back-to-back friendly fixtures.
Goalkeeper McGarvey was in the starting eleven and saved a 23rd minute penalty before being replaced late in the game. Full-back Coyle came in as a 65th minute substitute. The Poles got their two goals in the first half. It’s a busy week for McGarvey and Coyle who are key members of Kevin McHugh’s Finn Harps U15 side for the national semi-final against Athlone Town this Saturday evening at Dry Arch Park, Bonagee (kick-off 5.00).
