Lauren Currie’s impressive international debut has led to a place in the panel for Northern Ireland under 17s’ forthcoming series against Hungary.

The women’s football schedule will run from Monday to Thursday in Ballymena.

Currie, who remains eligible for the under 15s, made her mark during the recent friendly against Republic of Ireland as part of the summer Milk Cup programme.
