DANNY KANE PLAYS FOR IRISH U17s

1 April 2014

Eighth cap for Town youngster in Georgia draw

Huddersfield Town Academy scholar Danny Kane earned his eighth cap for the Republic of Ireland Under-17 side as it drew 2-2 with Georgia in its final UEFA Championships Elite Qualifying Round fixture on Monday.

The first year scholar played the full 90 minutes as the Irish surrendered a two goal lead in Serbia, with the Georgians hitting back with two goals in the final five minutes of the game.

This result means that the Irish now exit the competition at this stage having been defeated by the hosts and Germany in their previous two matches.

Danny, who has played centre back, right back and in holding midfield this season, joined Huddersfield Town from Cherry Orchard during 2013 and has made 16 appearances for Town’s league-winning Under-18 side this season, scoring once.

Town’s Under-18s are back in action on Saturday when they visit Charlton Athletic in the latest Professional Development League 2 game of the season.
