MK Dons defender Tom Flanagan has been called up to the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad for their International Challenge Match against England on Tuesday 13th November.
Flanagan, who has been on loan at Gillingham since the start of the season, has been in top form for Martin Allen’s side and has done enough to earn himself his first call up to the international scene.
The 20-year-old will link up with his Northern Irish team-mates on Sunday 11th November before taking on an England U-21 side at Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road.
The Dons centre-half has made 12 appearances for the Gills this campaign and even found the net in their 4-1 win over Burton Albion in October.
Flanagan came through the Dons’ Academy set-up to make his debut for the first team against Carlisle United in February 2010 and impressed last year having played in 23 League games for Karl Robinson’s side and it appears his development has continued during his time at Priestfield.
mkdons.com will have the latest on Flanagan’s International experience in due course.
