Shepherd selected for World Cup double-header

27 August 2014

Rovers Ladies midfielder Lynda Shepherd has been called up by Northern Ireland for two World Cup qualifiers.

The former England Under-23 international will join up with the squad next month for their final group games against Poland and the Faroe Islands.

Northern Ireland, who are unable to qualify for next summer’s finals in Canada, take on Poland in Torun on Saturday September 13th, before hosting the Faroe Islands in Lurgan four days later.

Shepherd, who returned to Rovers in pre-season following her release from Women’s Super League side Manchester City, has got seven caps for the country she switched allegiances to in 2013.
