U17 Northern Elite Division

Derry City Under-17s suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sligo Rovers in today’s Northern Elite Division fixture.

The visitors raced into a 2-0 lead before half-time thanks to strikes by Darren Collins & Niall Morahan.

Derry pulled a goal back when Caolan McLaughlin converted a penalty (video below) eleven minutes from time but despite pushing hard in final few minutes, the Candy Stripes couldn’t force an equaliser.

Derry City Under-17s next fixture is away to Monaghan/Cavan FP in the 2nd round of the Mark Farren Memorial Cup.

Derry City: Leannan McCann; Jack Clarke, Shaun Gerard Leppard, Ethan Harkin, Fionn McClure; Kian McGarvey, Adam Taggart, Kieran Farrren, Caolan McLaughlin, Daniel Ward, Aaron McGurk.

Will post more pictures in due course.
