Ciderspace News Page : Bassett Given International Training Camp Call-Up
16 August 2016 : Bassett Given International Training Camp Call-Up
Yeovil Town midfielder Ollie Bassett has been given an international call-up for a training camp with Northern Ireland. The 18 year old is currently in his first season as a full time professional, having come through the club's Under-18s side, as well as earlier spells on the books of Aston Villa and Southampton as part of their Academy set-ups. He has been invited to spend time with the Northern Ireland Under-19s set-up at the start of September.

At present there's not much detail behind his call-up, except to note that his inclusion is almost certainly across the weekend of September 3rd, when there is a scheduled international break for Premier League and Championship sides, with England playing Slovakia on that Sunday. There is no scheduled Northern Ireland Under-19 fixture, but they have a series of three Euro Under-19 qualifiers in early October in Poland, against Macedonia, Slovakia and Poland, suggesting that the September training camp is an opportunity for Head Coach Stephen Craigan to look at his options in a more informal environment ahead of any potential call-ups one month later.

Yeovil Town play at home against Blackpool on that weekend, although on recent seasons the international call-ups for players have also affected the preceding midweek fixtures, which could affect the EFL Trophy tie against Portsmouth.
