Maurice Nugent receives Ireland call
Galway United under-19 defender Maurice Nugent has been called-up to the Republic of Ireland under-19 squad.
The eighteen-year-old Clare native had an excellent season for Johnny Glynn’s side, catching the eye of Republic of Ireland under-19 manager Tom Mohan in the process.
Nugent lead the team all the way to the Under 19 League Final, making 24 appearances and scoring 3 goals in the process.
In what was his second season with United, Maurice displayed his comfort on the ball with both feet, versatility across the back four and prowess from set-pieces.
