Dummigan in Craigan's first Northern Ireland squad

30 April 2013 10:56
There has been a change at the top with the Northern Ireland under-19 squad with Stephen Craigan stepping up from assistant manager to replace previous manager Stephen Robinson.

Robinson has moved up to the under-21 squad with Craigan, who won 54 full caps for Northern Ireland during a playing career that saw him play over 400 games in Scottish League football.

Craigan will take charge for the first time tomorrow when they take on Wales in a friendly to be played at The Airfield, home of Welsh Premier League club Airbus UK Broughton.

Youth team right back Cameron Dummigan has been named in the squad of 18 for the game for the first time turned in some excellent performances in the recent UEFA qualifying campaign for the under-17 team.

No fewer than 13 of those players named are with English league clubs, one is with Rangers, three with clubs in the Irish League with one other player currently without a club.

It's another step up for Dummigan who has just completed, and done really well in, his first season at Turf Moor under the tutelage of Terry Pashley and Andy Farrell with the youth team squad.

Well done to him on this latest call up and hopefully he'll get the opportunity to play tomorrow.
