Drinan Wins Fifth Cap as Irish U21s Finish Fourth at Toulon
Saturday, 15th Jun 2019 15:08
Blues striker Aaron Drinan won his fifth Republic of Ireland U21 cap as his side were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Mexico in the third/fourth play-off at the Maurice Revello Toulon Tournament following a 0-0 draw, the second between the teams at the competition.
Drinan made his first U21s start before being replaced in the 77th minute with the game going straight to spot-kicks following the goalless 90 minutes.
The 21-year-old will now return to Town ahead of the start of pre-season training a week on Monday, Waterford having announced on Wednesday that his loan back in the League of Ireland, which was due to run to the end of the month, had been ended early.
Drinan’s seven goals for Waterford make him the League of Ireland Premier Division’s current joint-second top goalscorer.
The former Cork City youth player, who is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues but has been on the bench on five occasions, is contracted to Town until the summer of 2021.

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.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
