Kenny’s Kids: Tuesday round-up.

The Kenny’s Kids Twitter account was keeping busy across all of the action on Tuesday evening as Ireland’s brightest talents impressed once again across the water.

Here are the biggest stories from a busy night for Irish players in action…

Kenny’s Kids: Irish eyes smile in League One.

While there was plenty of Irish involvement in Championship action, it was the Irish in League One that will grab most, if not all of the attention.

Former Drogheda United and St Patrick’s Athletic defender Luke McNally turned in a superb display as Oxford United ran out 3-1 winners against Fleetwood Town.

McNally scored for United, while also impressing defensively throughout the game, who were in the midst of a Covid-19 outbreak within their squad.

Sheffield Wednesday’s Ciaran Brennan also impressed in League One action last night, helping Wednesday to a 2-1 win at home to MK Dons.

Brennan was recently recalled from a loan move with Notts County to return to Hillsborough in light of a defensive crisis at the club.

But he has impressed suitably to earn his shot at first-team football in League One, and the Ireland U19 will be hoping for more opportunities to follow.
