Town players earn further honours for their countries
- Further international honours for Town players
- Brodie Spencer makes his first Northern Ireland start
- Rolando Aarons makes Jamaica debut as a sub
Town players Brodie Spencer and Rolando Aarons hit career firsts with their respective countries this week as the latest set of international fixtures took place.
B Team defender Brodie, who only turned 18 in May, followed up his first Northern Ireland appearance as a substitute last week with his first start in Thursday evening’s 3-2 UEFA Nations League defeat in Kosovo.
Not only did the Belfast native play 86 minutes at right wing back in his first start for his nation, but he also recorded his first assist – a superb stood-up cross for Shayne Lavery’s goal.
It was also a big week for Aarons, who made his international debut for the country of his birth, Jamaica, as a second-half substitute in their 3-1 CONCACAF Nations League win over Suriname!
Both Spencer and Aarons could earn further caps over the weekend, with Jamaica travelling to Uruguay on Saturday and Northern Ireland hosting Cyprus.
There was also an eighth cap for Northern Ireland Under-19s for Academy striker Conor Falls, who played an hour in a 6-0 friendly win in Malta. There is a rematch between the two sides on Friday.
Several other players could earn further caps this week, with Sorba Thomas (Wales), Scott High (Scotland U21s) and Pat Jones (Wales U21s) all potentially in action alongside Aarons, Spencer and Falls.
