Drinan in Irish U21s Squad
Tuesday, 21st May 2019 15:32
Blues striker Aaron Drinan has been named in the Republic of Ireland U21s squad for the 2019 Maurice Revello Tournament in Toulon next month.
The competition begins on Monday 3rd June with Ireland facing Bahrain, China and Mexico in Group C which is being played in Provence.
Drinan, who has previously won one U21 cap, is currently on loan back in Ireland with his former club Waterford, for whom he has scored seven times in the League of Ireland with the season running through the summer.
The 21-year-old, who is on loan until June 30th, is contracted to Town until the summer of 2021.
Fellow Blues Barry Cotter and Corrie Ndaba were named in the previous U21s squad without winning a cap but are not included this time.
Elsewhere, former Blues striker Kieffer Moore, currently with Barnsley, has been named in a Wales squad for a training camp in Portugal, the 26-year-old's first international call.
Torquay-born Moore, who qualifies for Wales via his grandfather, was linked with a £2 million move to Bristol City at the weekend.
If Moore does move on then the Blues would receive a sell-on of what's likely to be 10 per cent of any profit on the £750,000 they received from the Tykes in January 2018.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
