Lisburn Distillery Match Preview

Full Internationals | 'B' Internationals | Under-23 | Under-21 | Irish League Representitive

Back at the turn of the 20th Century, during the early years of football on the island of Ireland; games against the English, Scottish and Welsh leagues were commonplace - and were held in high regard, second only to full international recognition.
These games sadly faded in popularity towards the end of the millennium, but have returned in 2007 with the UEFA International Challenge Trophy - which allows the best players under the age of 23 in league football to compete against each other.
Listed below are the details of those capped at Irish League representative level whilst at Ballymena United; note that this is not a complete list, only details of games available to the website.
