Midfielder Ralph Kottoy made history this week as the first ever Carrick Rangers player to win a full international cap whilst at the club.

Kottoy starred in the Central African Republic’s 3-2 friendly victory over Kenya on Tuesday in Marrakech. Nicknamed the ‘Wild Beasts’, the Central African Republic currently are 119th in the FIFA World Rankings.

The 26-year-old midfielder was recruited by Bluefin Sport Championship side Larne earlier in the season before a move to the Danske Bank Premiership in January, making eight appearances for David McAlinden’s side as they aim to avoid relegation.
