Shea Tigh from Portadown featured in the Northern Ireland panel for two of three group tests at the Cerebral Palsy World Championships.

The midfield ace was named on the substitutes’ bench in a 4-0 defeat by Netherlands.

He started the 3-3 draw against Argentina and 2-1 knockout win over Scotland.

The competition was staged in England’s St George’s Park from June 13-29.

The seven-a-side tournament featured 60-minute games on grass or a 3G surface.

Northern Ireland secured a spot in the World Championships thanks to eighth place at last year’s European tournament.
