STEPHEN IRELAND’S SON Joshua has been included in a UK-based training camp for the Republic of Ireland U19s. 

Tom Mohan has assembled 35 players for a three-day camp this week to assess his options ahead of the U19 European Championship qualifiers later this year.

Former Irish international Jon Walters is involved in the camp, as he takes his first steps into coaching.

Stephen Ireland’s son Joshua is among the playing group, having previously represented England at underage level. He is one of three Stoke players included, along with David Okagbue and Sam Knowles. 

Callum Kavanagh, son of Graham, another former senior Irish international, is included too. 

Other names to look out for include Bosun Lawall, recently voted Watford’s Youth Player of the Year and Zak Gilsenan, who is now at Blackburn having previously been at Barcelona’s academy. He is also eligible to represent Australia. 

As part of the camp, a selection of Ireland’s underage goalkeepers have met up for specialised training overseen by Ireland U21 goalkeeping coach Rene Gilmartin.

The camp concludes tomorrow.
