Philliskirk Praises Northern Ireland U19 Duo

11 October 2016

Youth team boss Tony Philliskirk praised both Dylan King and Brendy Glackin after the pair appeared for Northern Ireland under 19s recently.

After losing their first game to Slovakia, they both played 90 minutes in the 2-1 victory over FYR Macedonia on Saturday.

Philliskirk said: “I’ve spoken to them both and they’ve both been playing in the international games.

"I’ve had decent reports back from how they’ve done and it’s great. Boys from Oldham Athletic going away and playing international football is fantastic. 

“It’s something the club should be proud of, to have two internationals in the youth team and they are getting vital experience which can help them when we get back to Oldham Athletic.”

After today’s final game against Poland, they will both return to Oldham Athletic and be in contention to face York City at the weekend.
