Doncaster Rovers are proud of the fact that Luke McCullough (second row, fourth from right) has been included in Northern Ireland’s 23 man squad for UEFA Euro 2016 to be played in France this June.
The self proclaimed ‘Green and White Army’ now have their highest ever World Ranking of 25th and 22 year old McCullough is part of their first ever European Championships.
McCullough, who will wear the number 15 jersey, has made five appearances previously for Michael O’Neill’s side that will come up against Germany, Poland and Ukraine in Group C.
Slovakia, who are in Group B – alongside England – will tonight provide friendly preparation for the Irish in a warm-up game.
Born in Portadown, the former Manchester United trainee’s involvement in the tournament is the first by a Rovers player since Dean Furman captained South Africa at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
However, McCullough is the first Rovers player to represent Northern Ireland at a major international tournament since Len Graham (at the 1958 World Cup) and one of only ten players to have been capped by Northern Ireland while with the club.
We would like to congratulate Luke on his achievement and wish him well for the forthcoming tournament and his international career as a whole.
