Team Ireland will have a light training session this afternoon ahead of Friday’s European Youth semi-finals in the Turkish city.


Today is a rest day at the tournament.


Galway’s Gabriel Dossen and Sligo’s Jordan Myers are through to the last-four and are guaranteed at least bronze.


The Connaught pair meet England’s Mark Dickenson and Russia’s Danil Teterev tomorrow for places in Saturday’s finals.


Both Irish champions have claimed three wins each since last weekend in Antalya.


One ring will be in operation tomorrow with Myers in action in the 7th bout in the first session which begins at 12pm and Dossen between the ropes in the 5th bout in 2nd session which begins at 3pm (Irish times apply).
