Striker James Gray has said that his debut season in League Two has given him the chance to impress for his country.

The 20 year old was called up by the Northern Ireland U21 squad for their European Championship qualifier against Cyprus and of course the young Stanley player told the Official Site that he hoped he had done enough in training to convince the manager to start him.

‘I wasn’t in the U21s until I signed for Accrington and then I was in and out last year being one of the younger ones. This time it’s my age group so there will be a bit more pressure on but I can’t wait for this qualifying campaign. Accrington Stanley could give me the opportunity to play for the full national squad and that’s amazing.’

Gray clearly is proud of his achievements to far and the opportunity that Stanley has given him when it comes to the National team, and he adds that as he’s one of very few players to represent Northern Ireland at every age group Michael O’Neill has salready said that if he performs at club level and makes an impact at the U21 level, there is the possibility he’ll get a full senior chance sooner rather than later, but obviously that’s in his own hands.
