Bournemouth Hand Premier League Debut To Irish 19-Year-Old For Spurs Clash

Bournemouth Hand Premier League Debut To Irish 19-Year-Old For Spurs Clash
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Irish goalkeeper Mark Travers is set to start his first Premier League game this afternoon against Tottenham Hotspur.

Eddie Howe has elected to hand the Maynooth man his debut at Dean Court in what has already been an impressive 2019 for the 19-year-old.

Earlier this year, he was included in the Republic of Ireland senior squad by Mick McCarthy alongside Darren Randolph and Keiren Westwood. On the international front, Travers has represented the Republic of Ireland at under-15, under-16, under-18 and under-19 level.

It comes less than three years after he left Shamrock Rovers to join the Premier League side.

He is held in high regard within the club and signed a long-term deal last summer.

Speaking before kick-off, Eddie Howe explained his decision to start Travers: "We rate him very highly. Really great character, great attitude, very good goalkeeper. Huge potential, we think this is an ideal game for him to show what he is capable of."
