I played in the 96 and the 97 tournaments, mate for Motherwell FC.
My team got to the U14 final of the full thing the 1st year beating Middlesbourgh Man utd and Everton on the way to defeat to West Ham in front of a few thousand fans at the Showgrounds Coleraine. I was Squad number 14, but played every game
The second year we were U15 playing in the U16 tournament, we were knocked out of the full comp, but reached and won the consolation cup beating Crewe in the final. I scored 2 in a 3-1 win. I was Squad number 10 in 97

My former team mate Andy something can't remember his second name is on the front cover of the 97 Programme with Izzy Irekipen and Joe Cole.
