Ireland Under 17's lost their opening match against Worcestershire at Oak Hill as they slumped to a 64-run loss.

Dan Holland top-scored for the English county with 61 from 118-balls as they posted what looked a modest 192 for 9 in their 50 overs.

Brigade leg-spinner Kyle Magee (3-39) was the most successful of the Irish attack.

The Irish reply started poorly with Ollie Metcalfe and Louis McDonough falling cheaply, but they got back on track with a third wicket stand of 63 between Archie Johnston (38) and Seamus Lynch (23).

However from 65 for 2, the innings fell apart as they lost wickets at regular intervals to be dismissed for 128.

The teams meet again today (TUES) before playing two T20 games on Thursday.
