Symons Called Up For NI U19s

4 March 2014

Youth team defender Kyle Symons has become the latest Notts County player to receive an international call-up.

The attacking left-back has been named in the Northern Ireland Under-19s squad for their upcoming friendlies with Switzerland.

The two international challenge matches will take place on 4 March (The Oval, Belfast) and 6 March (Stangmore Park, Dungannon).

“It’s to great to have another boy in the mix to play international football,” said Academy manager Mick Leonard.

“Don Givens, the ex-QPR player, will be at a lot of our under-18 games because we’ve got Gino Kelleher and Reece Fyfe who are able to play for Northern Ireland through parentage. 

“If they think they’re good enough they’ll get them in and Kyle’s gone for the trial and got into the squad.

“He’s done well for us when he’s come in but he’s got a lot to learn and a long way to go.  

“He’s progressing so good luck to him and I hope he does well.”

Greg Tempest has received a call-up for the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad, as announced last week.

On-loan duo Callum McGregor and Jack Grealish are also set to feature for Scotland and Republic of Ireland Under-21s respectively during midweek.
