Cherries keeper in Irish provisional squad
Mick McCarthy has named third-choice Bournemouth keeper Mark Travers in his provisional Republic of Ireland squad.
The 19-year-old is part of the group selected for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia later this month.
Former Shamrock Rovers youngster Travers will also be part of the Irish Under-21 squad for a home fixture against Luxembourg on Sunday, March 24.
But he won't find out if he's to be involved with the senior party until March 17, when McCarthy finalises the senior squad.
Travers, who had been on loan at Southern League South Weymouth last season, has played for the Republic at all levels from Under-15 to Under-19 so far.
Meanwhile, youngsters Jaidon Anthony and Nnamdi Ofoborh took part in Bournemouth first-team training on Thursday together with Jefferson Lerma, who has now completed a two-match suspension after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season against Wolves.
