Statement on Ciara Watling social media post

Northern Ireland senior women's team manager Kenny Shiels had a meeting with Ciara Watling and a number of other players before last week's friendly against Belgium to inform her, and them, they would not feature in that game or the UEFA Women's Euro tournament in England.

Kenny and his staff thank Ciara and all those players who didn’t make the final selection for their considerable contribution to the squad’s tournament preparations.

They all have bright futures as part of the Northern Ireland senior women’s team’s continuing journey.
