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.

Is Lambo Playing Fantasy Football? by ElephantintheRoom
Many older supporters who know nothing and care even less about computer-based football games have a passing interest in fantasy football.
Where Next? by ElephantintheRoom
The season is over, the Lambert love-in has cooled and the dust is just about settling on the season ticket hype.
Where Might This Lead? by Moggasknockdown
As we draw stumps on the darkest season in the club’s recent history, it is hard not to reflect on Paul Lambert's efforts to revive our listing club with at least a degree of optimism for the future.
Fanstastic by LegendRay
There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
