Nathan Clancy was part of the Ireland under 14 side that finished third in the prestigious Hibernia Trophy that was played over the weekend (Aug 19th – 21st 2011) at Pierse Park, home of St. Josephs Boys Sallynoggin Dublin. He was introduced at half time during their opening fixture, a 2-0 win against FC Utrecht of Holland, for Chris Deasy. Ireland’s goals came from Jesse Deavers (Manulla). He started their second game against Leicester City, a 1-0 win when a fine volley from Kieron McPherson (Glencar) was enough to secure the points.
A Chris Coleman goal (Kilreen Celtic) against eventual winners Liverpool wasn’t enough to secure a final place for Ireland Celtic as they lost 2-1. He made his third appearance in the green jersey from the start against Linfield in a 3-2 win where Deavers, McPherson and a last minute winner from Coleman secured the points.
