Notts County goalkeeper Tiernan Brooks called up to Ireland U21 for Austria friendlies


Notts County goalkeeper Tiernan Brooks has been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under 21 squad for their upcoming friendlies in Austria.

The 20-year-old, who has been a key part of the Magpies’ promotion-winning campaign, will join Jim Crawford’s side for a training camp this weekend.

Despite being born in Sheffield, Brooks is eligible to play for Ireland due to his family connections in Sligo. He showcased his skills for the Irish U21s in March, contributing to their 2-1 victory over Iceland.

He will now hope to add to his cap tally in the following matches:

• Tuesday 13 June: Gabon U23s • Friday 16 June: Ukraine U21s • Monday 19 June: Kuwait U21s

Brooks extended his contract with Notts County for three years in June. He impressed while playing on loan for Coalville Town, Hednesford Town, and Boston United.

He's worked with England's youth teams before. He went to a training camp for goalkeepers at St. George's Park in December 2021. He was also on the standby list for the England U19s' European Championship in 2022.

Nonetheless, his decision to play for the Irish national team presents an opportunity for him to showcase his talent to Crawford, in preparation for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifiers slated for September 2023.

Brooks is one of three goalkeepers in the Ireland U21 squad, along with Killian Cahill (Brighton & Hove Albion) and Josh Keeley (Tottenham Hotspur).

He is part of a group of fifteen English club players including Tayo Adaramola (Crystal Palace), James Furlong (Brighton & Hove Albion), Sean Grehan (Crystal Palace), Connor O'Riordan (Crewe Alexandra), Sean Roughan (Lincoln City), Darragh Burns (MK Dons), Jack Henry-Francis (Arsenal), Joe Hodge (Wolves), Killian Phillips (Crystal Palace), Harry Vaughan (Hull City), Sinclair Armstrong (QPR), Dylan Duffy (Lincoln City), Andrew Moran (Brighton & Hove Albion), Armstrong Oko-Flex (West Ham United), and Ollie O'Neill (currently on loan from Fulham to Derry City).

After the friendlies, Brooks aims to maintain his excellent performance for Luke Williams' team, as they have successfully recovered their Football League status following their triumph at the National League playoffs. Brooks will be back at Notts County to achieve this goal.

I am pleased for Tiernan Brooks on his call-up to the Republic of Ireland U21 squad. He will be flying to Austria to play in three friendlies as part of the build-up for the UEFA U21 Euro qualifiers. Tiernan has been brilliant and reliable as a keeper, and we are chuffed to bits for him. We wish him all the best as he wears his country’s colours and shows them what he can do on the big stage!

Congratulations to Tiernan Brooks on his fantastic achievement of being selected for the Ireland U21 squad. He has worked hard and shown great potential as a goalkeeper for Notts County. He will be joining his fellow Irishmen in Austria for three friendly matches ahead of the UEFA U21 European Championship qualifiers.

This is a great opportunity for him to gain valuable experience and exposure at the international level. We are very proud of him and wish him all the best in his future endeavours!
