Jack Connors receives another call from Republic of Ireland under-21’s boss Noel King
Dagenham & Redbridge defender Jack Connors has been called up for international duty by the Republic of Ireland under-21’s.
Irish Examiner published the latest squad selected by Noel King this morning and the 20-year-old has been picked for his country’s friendly fixtures against the USA on November 15 and versus Russia on November 17 in Marbella, Spain.
The left-back will therefore be unavailable for Daggers League Two fixture with AFC Wimbledon a week on Saturday.
Connors has made 11 appearances for the Victoria Road outfit this season but has been an unused substitute in their last three matches, with manager Wayne Burnett selecting Nathan Green instead.
Burnett will also be without Trinidad & Tobago international Andre Boucaud for the trip to The Cherry Reds Records Stadium.
However, his impending thoughts will presumably be on this weekend’s FA Cup first round tie with Southport at Victoria Road.
