The decisive moment in the game arrived when Peter Doherty’s downward header rebounded off the outstretched hand of Oisin McColgan and landed at the feet of the grateful Bradley, who made no mistake in finding the back of the net.

James McClean surprises U15 squad

Posted on Updated on

Republic of Ireland international James McClean made a surprise visit to watch the Derry City U15 panel play Stoke City during their end of season tour this afternoon.

McClean continues to inspire the next generation of young players and landed into the City dressing room before today’s game and handed out 9 pairs of boots to the players and stayed on to support the boys.

Derry went 1-0 down from a set piece on 53 minutes before Luca Doherty headed home the equaliser on 65 minutes.

City had late chances, Keenan McLaren was stopped by a great defensive block and Oisin Gallagher slipped Luca Doherty in but he was denied by a smart stop by the GK before the Stoke defence cleared.

Well done James and the lads.

Derry City Reserves 0-2 Finn Harps Reserves

Lee Bradley Walsh and Corey McBride struck the goals as Finn Harps Reserves recorded a fine 2-0 win over Derry City Reserves at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Played in excellent conditions, it was the visitors who produced a highly efficient display to defeat a Derry side that failed to register a single shot on target all afternoon.

The first chance of the game fell to Niall McGinley but his effort from long range was smothered at his near post by City keeper Nathan Gartside. Soon after, Gabriel Aduaka flashed a shot just wide before Harps’ early pressure paid off on 21 minutes.

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.
