- First international action for the 18 year-old
Huddersfield Town Academy midfielder Sam Warde made his Republic of Ireland’s Under-18 debut in an international friendly against England on Sunday afternoon.
The 18 year-old played the final 15 minutes of the game as a substitute; his first action for Eire at any level.
Head Coach Paul Doolin’s side lost the noon kick-off 4-1 against the hosts at England's St. George’s Park facility in Staffordshire.
Born in Limerick, Sam joined Huddersfield Town from Irish junior side Mungret Regional ahead of the start of the 2014/15 season.
Now in the second year of his two year scholarship, Sam has scored three goals in 23 starts and one substitute appearance for Town’s Under-18s this term, as well as making his Under-21 debut.
Warde is one of three Academy scholars who will be offered a first professional contract by the Club at the conclusion of the season.
