JAKE CAPTAINS IRELAND AGAINST FINLAND
Jake Doyle Hayes was the pride of the Cavan Monaghan Underage League as he captained the Republic of Ireland under 15 squad against Finland last Thursday when the two countries played at the home of Swords Celtic F.C in Dublin. Jake made his debut in December for the Republic of Ireland in the gulf state of Qatar when he played the Italian giants of Juventus F.C. It was a great honour for Jake, his family, Ballyjamesduff F.C and the CMUL emerging talent programme as he led Ireland out alongside Finland Captain Kalle Salmi. The only disappointment on the day was the result as the Republic of Ireland Under 15 squad suffered their first defeat of the season losing 3 v 0. Jake of Ballyjamesduff F.C is also a member of this year’s Cavan Monaghan Underage League squad managed by Olly Martin and Kieran Donnelly that will be competing in the Northern Ireland Milk Cup.
