Sixteen year old Aaron Spring has been selected on the Ireland U-18 Youth squad to play in a special International tournament in Italy next month. Aaron played for Ireland in France earlier this month, and obviously impressed the selectors, who have named him in the squad for this prestigious tournament.
Jason East, who as a Sligo player was capped for Ireland at Youth level last season, continues to progress, and on Friday last he was a member of the Irish Colleges side which defeated the Scottish Universities at Jordanstown University. Jason, who is a member of the Connacht Academy, is a student at GMIT. The recognition of the talent of Aaron and Jason at national level is testimony to the quality of the coaching in the club, and to the healthy state of the under-age game in Sligo.
