Shane Lowry: Now's the chance for Aston Villa young guns

DEFENSIVE debutant Shane Lowry insists it is up to the young guns to seize their opportunity during Villa’s early-season struggles.

The 20-year-old made his competitive bow last night after coming on as a late replacement for the injured Curtis Davies.

“It’s only 1-0,” he said. “We’ll be back at Villa Park and we have the quality to go out there and get the result.

“The squad might be a bit thin but it’s a good chance for the lads coming through, it gives us more of an opportunity.”

Lowry was pleased to sample the European experience but disappointed to finish on the losing side. But the rookie admits Martin O’Neill’s lack of defensive recruits could work in his favour.

“It was a mixed debut,” added Lowry. “I was happy to play but the team didn’t get the result.

“For a young player coming through the lack of signings is ideal because you want to get your chance.”

He is not on the DB.

Re: Shane Lowry

He was put up as Irish as his nationality. Despite him playing for Ireland youth in recent times, he was in the squad for the two recent games we played against the Netherlands and Oman (didn't play from what I remember).

You clearly didn't read that article! He was in the squad for the Socceroos in two recent games' date=' but didn't play. His allegiance is now with Australia and all he needs to do is play a game, unless he swapped back. The chances of that happening is low.

Right there he is also named in the recent squad from those two matches (it says he has two caps in his page, but he hasn't actually played yet).
