LARNE'S SEAN GRAHAM MAKES STEP UP TO NORTHERN IRELAND U21s

Larne's Sean Graham made his Northern Ireland Under-21 debut in Monday night's UEFA European Championship qualifying clash with Romania in Voluntari.

Graham, on a season long loan at Inver Park from Blackpool, was named in the squad for the Denmark game at the end of last week but didn't come off the bench.

He was one of three Danske Bank Premiership players, along with Kofi Balmer and Shayne Lavery, to get a full 90 minutes in what was a three-goal defeat for Ian Baraclough's side.

A further three players, Glenavon duo Caolan Marron and Jack O'Mahony plus Glentoran's Paul O'Neill, were named in the match day panel but didn't get any game time.
