Boyne Community School student James Clarke will be looking forward to a big game tomorrow night at Dalymount Park.
Clarke is a member of the the Republic of Ireland Schools' side for the eagerly-awaited game against England.
This will be the second outing in the Centenary Shield as they play host to an impressive and physical English line-up in Dalymount Park, Dublin
Northern Ireland are enjoying supremacy with victories at home to Scotland, away to Wales and a scoreless draw away to England last Friday night.
Republic of Ireland Head coach William O’Connor will relish another top quality encounter against an English side that have improved with each game.
O'Connor has made one change to the side that drew with Scotland.
St Louis CS, Kiltimagh star Jack O’Connor misses out as he recalls Dónal Higgins (Yeats College, Galway) into the side following his earlier involvement this season against Australia.
The Republic of Ireland have three games on the bounce with O’Connor’s penultimate clash against Northern Ireland the following week, Thursday, 18th April in Queen’s University, Belfast (6pm).
Wales will visit for the final game with Home Farm FC facilitating the event at the end of the month.
