Town youngster plays for Republic of Ireland

Huddersfield Town defender Danny Kane earned a second Under-18 cap for the Republic of Ireland on Thursday evening in a goalless draw at Luxembourg.

The 18 year-old centre back played 90 minutes in the first friendly in Luxembourg on Tuesday (click HERE for a review) and although Coach Jim Crawford wanted to look at the other players in the squad on Thursday, Danny still played 60 minutes as a substitute – helping the Irish to a second consecutive clean sheet.

The pair of friendlies allowed the Irish to look at players such as Danny ahead of November’s UEFA Under-19 Championship qualifiers.

Danny, now 18 years-old, is the current Republic’s Under-17 Player of the Year; click HERE for info.

The central defender made 14 appearances for Town’s Professional Development League 2 North winning Under-18 side during 2014/15, as well as four appearances for Frankie Bunn’s Under-21s. 

Danny, who joined the Terriers from Irish side Cherry Orchard in February 2013, has already signed a professional contract with the Club and will become a full time member of the Development Squad during the 2015/16 campaign.
