Alan Inglis and Kenny Feaks have become the latest Doune Castle players to earn international recognition.

Alan and Kenny played for Scotland Amateurs in the recent, inaugural Graham Harkness Memorial Trophy match against Ireland Amateurs Leinster at Palmerston Park, Dumfries, home of Queen of the South.

The match paid tribute to the former President of Scottish Amateur Football Association, who died unexpectedly earlier in the season.

And, it was a winning debut for the Castle duo, with the Scots triumphing 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out after the sides had battled to a 0-0 draw after 90 minutes. Kenny and Alan both appeared as second half substitutes and played their part in securing victory for the Scots.

Kenny was his usual calm presence in defence, helping to snuff out any Irish goal threat. Alan was a constant threat up front. He also confidently scored the crucial first penalty to set the Scots on the way to capturing the Trophy specially struck for the occasion.

Alan and Kenny join a long list of past Castle internationalists, but become the first to receive individual international recognition since the early 1990’s when Iain Blackwood donned the dark blue of Scotland.
