Winger Paddy Lane and midfielder Barry Baggley have been called up to the Northern Ireland senior squad for a four-day training camp at St. George’s Park.
Lane – who made his senior debut for the national team against Lithuania in March – has had a brilliant first season with the Cods, winning the League One Young Player of the Year award whilst amassing 39 appearances, scoring five and assisting a further eight in that time.
This run of form hasn’t gone unnoticed as he has been nominated into the Team of the Week multiple times by the league body, and The League Paper, and was even named in the best Under-21 EFL XI back in February.
Baggley has risen through the ranks in the Northern Ireland setup, making 18 appearances for the Under-17s, Under-19s, and Under-21s respectively, and has now been called up for his first senior training camp after a strong end to the League One season.
The midfielder added on to his appearance tally at the end of April, making his total 15 in all competitions. Not only that, but he also scored the opener in Fleetwood’s final game of the season against Bolton Wanderers, with both sets of fans clapping the sensational goal from distance.
Congrats to you both and good luck at the training camp!
