Yeates Gets 'B` Call-up

Yeates Gets 'B` Call-up


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!
