October 13, 1972

On Friday 13th October 1972 the Derry board met. The decision was to withdraw from the Irish League and all its other competitions

“In view of the decision of the Irish League Management Committee to ban Brandywell, a resolution was passed unanimously by the Board of Derry City Football Club that membership of the Irish league be withdrawn as from Friday.

The board have considered all relevant matters and in particular the fact that the Management Committee of the Irish Football League have seen fit not to accept the recommendations and indeed the encouragement of the security authorities that a return to brandywell was advisable.

At considerable cost to the club, Derry City for the past three years have kept football alive in the interested of the Irish League and indeed the community at large in what can only be described as the most difficult of circumstances.

We thank our players and supporters who have supported us in our difficult task for the past three years and hope that they appreciate that the Board have no alternative but to come to this decision”.

Willie Ross announced that Derry retained their membership of the IFA through the North-West FA and as a first move to keep the club in existence, would apply for membership of the Northwest Saturday morning league.

Boyce makes his senior debut

Posted on Updated on

Congratulations to Derry City Under-19 defender Ronan Boyce, who made his competitive first-team debut this evening, coming on as a second-half substitute against Cork City.

Ronan made his first competitive appearance for the club as a 16-year-old in the Mark Farren Cup tie against Dundalk in July, 2017 and has gone on to become an established member of the Under-19 panel.

The Swilly Rovers clubman has produced a number of consistent performances in his time at the Brandywell and deserves the opportunity to showcase his talent on the national stage.

Well done Ronan, keep working hard.
