Blues Women’s Chloe McCarron and Rebecca Holloway have been called-up to the latest Northern Ireland Women’s squad.

Both were involved when they took on England in an international friendly earlier this year.

The pair have now been chosen by manager Kenny Shiels for Northern Ireland’s UEFA Women’s European Championship Play-Off fixtures later this month.

Facing off against Ukraine over two legs, the Green and White Army will travel to Kolos – Kovalivka on Friday 9 April (5pm kick-off) before returning to Belfast for the return leg at Seaview on Tuesday 13 April (7.45pm kick-off).

Northern Ireland are looking to qualify for their first European Championship having finished as runners-up in Qualifying Group C behind Norway.

This will be Ukraine's fourth play-off, being successful in qualification for the finals tournament in 2009.

Good luck, Chloe and Rebecca.
