Congratulations to 18 year old Portadown striker Callum Ferris who made his Northern Ireland U21 debut in their 1-1 draw with Finland U21s on Tuesday 10 September in a UEFA European Championship qualifier.

Callum came off the bench with just under a quarter of an hour remaining to replace Dunfermline Athletic’s Lewis McCann to cap off quite a few days for the Ports striker who had bagged two goals last week for Northern Ireland U19s against the Faroe Islands at Stangmore Park.

Callum is a product of the Portadown FC Youth system and became the youngest ever player to score a goal in the top flight of the Irish League when he scored a penalty for Portadown against Ards at the age of 15 years and 287 days in April 2017 while in January 2017 he had become the youngest ever player to appear for Portadown when he made his debut against Glentoran at the age of 15 years and 182 days, breaking a record that had stood since 1936.
