LUFC Keeper Misses Out On Euro Finals

Young Leeds United goalkeeper Eric Grimes will not be featuring in the European under-19 championship finals later this summer after Republic of Ireland finished third in their final qualification group.

Ireland went into their last game against Serbia needing a win to stand any chance of qualifying as group winners but they were no match for the current holders of the competition.

Serbia booked their place in the finals in Hungary next month with a 3-1 win in Ireland as Grimes kept the scoreline respectable in a one-sided contest.

After being in fantastic form in the 2-1 defeat to Turkey in their last games, Grimes was again in great form as Serbia had 24 attempts on goal during the game. The Republic of Ireland official website Republic of Ireland official website once again highlighted the form of Grimes in the game, 'Leeds United keeper Grimes was impressive throughout the tournament and he was at his best today. He showed his quality in the 23rd minute when he raced out to save at the feet of Veljko Simić.`

Grimes made nine appearances for the under-21 side after making his debut in August 2013.
