Irish squad for BDO World Cup Qualifier announced

October 22, 2009

Irish men's national team coach Paul Revington has revealed his 18 selected to play for Ireland at the BDO World Cup Qualifier in Quilmes, Argentina which takes place from the 14-22 November.

The Irish Men's squad has had plenty of match practice over the last few months in their build up towards this tournament giving Coach Revington ample opportunity to assess player form prior to selecting his squad. He will also be afforded the opportunity to fine tune his athletes as Ireland will now head to Lilleshall in England to play two final tests on the 4 and 5 November before they depart for Argentina.

Michael Watt, Joe Brennan and David Hobbs who have all sustained injuries over the last period have been included in Revington's line up as has Paul Gleghorne in what will be his first inclusion for a major tournament ÔÇ£Michael Watt rejoins the Team having missed the Euro Nations Trophy with a hand injury. I am very pleased to announce the inclusion of Paul Gleghorne. Paul brings good personal form into the Team and provides a good balance to the Team across the different playing lines. Joe Brennan and David Hobbs are both selected despite recent injuries and will be expected to pass fitness tests before departure.ÔÇØ
