Duleek's Kavanagh on Leinster/Munster panel

DULEEK'S Barry Kavanagh has been named on the Leinster/Munster panel for a UEFA Regions Cup qualifying tournament in San Marino next month.

The junior international striker is the only MDL representative in the squad, which is made up primarily of Leinster Senior League, AUL and Munster Senior League players.

The team will face Jersey (England) on March 6, San Marino on March 8 and Eastern Region (Northern Ireland) on March 10 for a place in the UEFA Regions Cup Finals in June. They qualified to represent Ireland after beating Connacht/Ulster in a play-off last month. As part of their preparations the team will play a home-based Republic of Ireland U-21 squad next Saturday in the AUL Complex and this will be followed by a friendly on Wednesday, February 27, at Home Farm FC, Whitehall, against Catalonia who have already qualified for this summer's finals.
