Colchester United`s leading scorer Mark Yeates has expressed his delight at being called up to the Republic of Ireland ‘B` squad for a forthcoming international.

“I’m delighted to have been selected, although I haven’t had any official confirmation yet,” revealed Yeates in the East Anglian Daily Times last week.

“I’m very proud when I play for my country. I’ve made a few appearances for the under-21s, and I knew that there was a “B” international coming up.

“It thought that a few newcomers might get an opportunity, so I hoped that I’d get the sniff of a chance.

“Obviously it’s great that my performances for Colchester have been recognised this season. The Championship is a really strong league. It’s a decent level of football, and it gets a lot of coverage.

“It’s just a step down from the Premier League, and there’s been a few people come along to watch me.

‘It’s nice to be noticed,” added Yeates, who has seven goals this season and has been in blistering form.

  • Good news…Thought this guy was very good on Saturday – nice range of passing and one hell of a boot on him at set-pieces.

  • Yeah – but maybe the A squad to do with him too! Someone who actaully wants to play for us too, which is a rare thing! That is me being negative – but he’s great to watch!
