Youths trio assist Ireland's U17 girls
THE REPUBLIC of Ireland Under-17 girls' team has qualified for the elite phase of the UEFA championships after winning all three of their qualifying group games in Belarus last week.
Three players from Wexford Youths played an integral part in the qualification, with Ashling Frawley scoring the vital goal on the last day to beat Finland 2-1 while Ciara Rossiter and Lauren Dwyer also playedin that excellent victory.
Earlier in the week, Ireland beat Belarus 3-0 and Georgia 7-0 to set up a winner-takes-all match against Finland and, after an exciting tussle, the girls in green did enough to book their place in the elite phase of the competition.
Meanwhile, the second set of trials for the League Training Centre will take place in All Blacks on Sunday next, with Under-12s (born 2001-2002) on from 2 to 3.30 p.m. while Under14s (born 1999-2000) are in from 3.30 to 5 p.m.

For the second year in a row, Kilmore United qualified for the national Under12 finals after coming through a very competitive Leinster section with two wins and two draws.
Draws against Cabinteely and Shelbourne (Dublin) and wins over Gorey Celtic and St. Joseph's (Dublin) saw them safely through with Emily Bates, Abbie Troy and Sophie Boxwell scoring the all-important goals along the way.
Gorey Celtic, Cloughbawn and Tombrack United also represented Wexford at this provincial blitz, with Celtic and Cloughbawn just missing out and Tombrack's young side acquitted themselves well.
