City on Lawlor:

Hailing from Dublin, 6ft 4 Ian Lawlor has already represented his country at youth level for the under-19s in the UEFA Qualifiers last year.

In 2013/14, Lawlor was a regular for City EDS in the NextGen Series and also made the no.1 shirt his own when Eirik Johansen went on loan to Scunthorpe United.

Ian used to turn out for the esteemed Home Farm team in Ireland before crossing the Irish Sea in 2010 to join City. Home Farm boasts a glittering CV of Premier League footballers past and present, including former City captain Richard Dunne – huge footsteps the youngster will hope to follow in.

Lawlor enjoyed a spell with the first-team on the 2012/13 pre-season tour of Austria and has trained regularly alongside Joe Hart, Costel Pantilimon and Richard Wright at Carrington over the past couple of years.

He was a regular starter for the Elite Development Squad across all domestic competitions in 2013/14, making 28 appearances in all competitions.

His impressive performances between the sticks caught the eye of Ireland manager Martin O'Neil and Lawlor was called up to the senior international side for the first time for their two game post-season mini-tour of the USA in June 2014.

Although Ian didn't feature, it's hoped that the experience will stand him in good stead for another season of development under City EDS goalkeeper coach, Dave Felgate.
