Greencastle’s Roma McLaughlin has been named on the Republic of Ireland panel for an international friendly against Scotland on July 7th.

The game takes place at Stark Park, the home of Raith Rovers and will be the final game before the 2019 World Cup qualifying campaign begins in September.

Colin Bell, the Republic of Ireland manager, has selected McLaughlin, who now plays her club football with Shelbourne.

“It is the final game before we start our World Cup qualification campaign so it is important we continue to improve on the form we’ve shown this year,” Bell said.

“I was really impressed with the spirit and determination shown against a strong Iceland side in difficult conditions and I’ll be looking for the same qualities in Scotland for what should be another difficult test. Scotland are currently in a pre-European Championships camp whilst our players will be coming back from holiday.

“The individual responsibility of my players will be vital and I’ve every confidence that the players will be well prepared for the game.”
