NEWS: Ireland announce squad

Joint Ireland team managers Steve Copping & Gary Colby have named a 7 rider squad from which their team for the Senior Home International at Newport this Saturday will be selected.

The full squad is Lewis Roberts (Ipswich), Charlie Rumbold (Ipswich), Phil Hemming (Wednesfield), Leigh Cossey (Hethersett & Ipswich), Phil Widdas (Birmingham), Steve Copping (Norwich) and Gary Colby (Norwich).

At the time of writing this Leigh Cossey had still to confirm his availability so Steve and Gary have taken the precaution of adding themselves to the squad as well as Phil Widdas who had expressed an interest to Gary to help out if needed.

Ireland will not be fielding a Junior team for the Junior event on this occasion.

Leigh Cossey has pulled out since this story was published
