Four Irish players have been named in the Great Britain and Ireland St Andrews Trophy squad ahead of August’s match with the Continent of Europe in Sweden.

Dermot McElroy (Ballymena), Gavin Moynihan (The Island), Jack Hume (Naas), and Gary Hurley (West Waterford have made the 21-strong squad from which nine players will be chosen to try and win back the trophy at Barsebäck Golf and Country Club from August 29-30.

Nigel Edwards will captain the team for the third time as GB&I look to reclaim the trophy after the Continent of Europe’s narrow 12½ – 11½ victory at Portmarnock in 2012. 
“The final selection of the team for the St Andrews Trophy match will be dependent on performances and, therefore, players who are not named in this squad have every chance of playing their way on to the team,” said Edwards.
