Five Phoenix players have been picked in the Leinster North Under 17 panel ahead of this seasons campaign. The panels have been split into North and South for training purposes. The final panel will take part in a number of key fixtures over the course of the summer.
The five Phoenix players involved are Sim Singh, Rory Anders, Marc Gibson McKenna, Ben White and Adam Chester. This will give the boys involved an opportunity to further develop their skills and to try to gain selection onto the Leinster U17’s squad.
