Doune Castle’s prolific goalscorer, Alan Inglis, has picked up his second international amateur football cap of the season.

Alan followed up his earlier appearance against the Republic of Ireland by representing the Scottish Amateur Football Association in their annual Jack Britton Rose Bowl clash with Northern Ireland, played at Newcastle, County Down.

Unfortunately for the Scots, the loss of two early goals proved crucial. Although they pulled one back before the interval, Northern Ireland edged the game 2-1. Despite not getting on the score sheet, Alan played well and enjoyed his first full ninety minutes in the national team colours.

Alan’s selection is well-earned reward for his consistent form and he has been the Castle’s top scorer for the past four years and, has already notched 33 goals during the current campaign, with two matches still remaining.

He remains on course to finish as the Caledonian League’s top marksman.

Alan now has an anxious wait to find out if he will be selected for the SAFA’s venture in the UEFA Regions Cup in early June.

The Scots will travel to Slovenia to challenge their hosts, Greece and San Marion in a round-robin qualifying group to earn a place in the tournament’s knock-out stages later in the year.

Kenny Feaks, Doune’s classy sweeper also earned his first cap against the Republic. Despite being unavailable for the Jack Britton clash and the Regions Cup foray, the Castle’s elegant defender is highly regarded by the Scottish management team.

Everyone at Doune Castle hopes that the inclusion of Alan and Kenny can be the platform for others in the Castle squad to maintain the club’s rich history of providing players of the national team.
