Northern Ireland Players in the Premiership (1998/99-2001/02)


In the four seasons that spanned the turn of the 21st Century, the number of Northern Ireland players plying their trade in Premiership first XIs declined further - just ten made their debuts in the 1998/99-2001/02 seasons.

In the fourth in our series we look at these ten, one of whom went on to become Northern Ireland's first Premiership winner...
