Northern Ireland Harry McConkey said: "I say to my players that this is not just a footballing education – which it clearly is – but also it's a life experience, with the different cultures, different languages and the different styles of play. It's absolutely massive for my players and myself to represent Northern Ireland."

"In Northern Ireland we are used to talking about two communities and the lovely part of playing in the Regions' Cup is seeing players from those two communities gelling. We see young lads from West Belfast and East Belfast coming back and saying of one another: 'He's a brilliant lad', and that's so precious for us."
