Killester Donnycarney’s midfield maestro Stephen Chambers was on the scoresheet for Ireland as they continued their Regions Cup preparations last weekend.

The Ireland Amateur Team made it back-to-back friendly wins over Wales, following up an impressive 2-1 Turners Cross hosted win in August with a 2-0 win in Colwyn Bay on Saturday gone.

Both of last week’s goals came in the first half and from midfielders with LSL Senior Sunday star Chambers and Cork’s Nathan Broderick finding the net.

Former Bohemians U-20 Chambers broke the deadlock on 12 minutes and Rockmounts Broderick doubled the advantage and ended the game scoring just six minutes later.

Chambers wasn’t the only Leinster Senior League or Dublin player involved.  Home Farm’s centre-half Jack McCullen started at the back, Aaron Humphries of Kilbarrack United fame wore the Irish crest again, Oliver Bond’s Jimmy McHugh started with  number 11 on his back and all-action front man Shane Strich, who returned to Bluebell United from Edenderry this year, lead the line.

Goal-scoring hero against Ireland Under-20s and Malahide fullback Glen Daly was also in Gerry Davis’s matchday squad having returned from injury.

Ireland have a double-header with Northern Ireland to come before heading to Bulgaria in October for a UEFA Regions Cup qualifier.
