Youngster Jack Grealish has been rewarded for his continuing improvement at the club by being named the Republic of Ireland’s U17 Player of the Year, as that improvement was more than on show during their European Championship qualifying campaign where the Republic progressed to the Elite Round of the competition, in part helped by Grealish’s three goals in six games.

The player tweeted after the ceremony:

‘Thank you everyone for your messages. It was a great achievement for me. Lie is all about winning things and making your family proud. It was a great night and was great to meet the Irish first team!’

Can’t be too long before his gets his first team taste with us as he’s shining at all other levels still.

Well done Jack!
