Derryn, pictured left against Boness United earlier in the season, played in right-midfield during the sixty minutes he was on for before being substituted in the 1-1 draw. Speaking of his time with the national schoolboys side he said…

“I was very honoured to represent my country at schoolboy level, it’s an experience I will never forget. It was a hard game but I enjoyed it very much, and I’m looking forward to getting called up again in the near future…”

Everyone at BAJFC are very happy and pleased with Derryn’s progress at such a young age. Fed manager Keith Gibson said…

“I’m very chuffed for Derryn playing for his country’s school side. He is a great young player and is getting more and more experience as he goes along. He is a joy to watch and have at the club, as he pushes and pushes for a place in the squad…”
