Skipper Hutton returns as Wylie's Northern Ireland girls take on Czechs

By Stuart McKinley

Northern Ireland will target third place in their European Championship qualifying group when they clash with the Czech Republic at Mourneview Park tonight (7.30pm).

Like Northern Ireland, the Czechs beat Georgia 3-0 back in the autumn and a second win of the campaign for Alfie Wylie's girls would see them travel to Italy on Tuesday with the opportunity to go second in the group.

Wylie's squad is boosted by the return of long-serving captain Ashley Hutton and midfielder Sarah McFadden.

Meanwhile, the Northern Ireland under-19 women lost 7-1 to Spain in their European qualifying tournament, with Shannon Holloway scoring the goal.

The under-15 boys beat Belgium 3-1 thanks to a brace from Portadown's Callum Ferris and one from Coleraine's Conor Farrelly.
