The schoolboy who is yet to join our Academy full-time was one of 29 players named by new boss Steve Staunton for a training camp and friendly international against Chile on May 24.
He joins Spurs team-mates Robbie Keane Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the RepublicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s skipper and record goalscorer Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Andy Reid and Stephen Kelly.
Terry is a forward who played behind the front two in most of his 10 starts and one substitute appearance for the Under-18 side this season. He will join us as a First Year Trainee in July.
He put in some fine performances for the Ireland Under-17s throughout the season and Staunton was impressed after watching him first hand in UEFA U17 qualifying matches.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“My manager at the European Championships said it might be happening but I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think anything more of it,Ã¢â‚¬Â reflected Terry after training with the senior players in the final session at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I met Steve Staunton in Ireland and he said well done to me for the last couple of months but he didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say anything about this and havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t spoken to him since.
"I was called on Monday with the news that I was included and I was over the moon.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a big step up and I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect it but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll go there and enjoy it.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really know the Irish lads even at Spurs but I trained with Stephen Kelly on Tuesday and he said well done to me.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure it will be a great experience - just training with the squad will be unbelievable. It will give me confident going into next season and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to take tips off the likes of Robbie, that will be fantastic.Ã¢â‚¬Â
