Derry City 2-2 Finn Harps

Sean McBride scored a dramatic 90th-minute equaliser as Derry City U19s snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat against north-west rivals Finn Harps at Brandywell on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Stephen Doherty and Jamie Browne had given the Ballybofey side a 2-1 lead but with just seconds remaining a great piece of opportunism by McBride saw the 19-year-old capitalise on a defensive error to roll the ball home and deny his hometown club victory.

UNDERAGE WEEKLY UPDATE – U17s secure a fine draw in dublin, U19s suffer heavy defeat

  •  Two-goal Jamie Hamilton inspires Bohs to victory at Brandywell
  •  Sean McBride notched his third goal in four games
  •  Bohs proved more clinical in front of goal
  •  A brace from Ronan McKinley secured U17s a draw with leaders Bohemians in Dublin

U19 Northern Elite Division

Derry City 1-4 Bohemians

Bohemians produced a highly efficient display to record an impressive victory over a disappointing Derry City outfit on Saturday afternoon in the Northern Elite Division.

The visitors were quick out of the blocks and with barely four minutes on the clock the Candy Stripes were behind. Jamie Hamilton found some space on the edge of the box and hit a sweet left-footed effort which cannoned off the post and into the net beyond the reach of City keeper McCallion.

Bohs continued to dictate the early stages with some nice precision passing and had a great opportunity to double their lead on 15 minutes. After some good work down the right flank by the wonderfully named Promise Omochere, the ball fell to Steven Nolan inside the area. He managed to evade Noel Doherty’s challenge before thundering a drive at goal but McCallion produced a fine save to keep the score at one nil.

UNDERAGE WEEKLY UPDATE – City complete double win over Shels

The Derry City Under-17 and Under-19 development squads secured good wins over Shelbourne at the weekend.

  • Rhys McDermott’s goal on 9 minutes was enough to ensure Derry U19s collected all three points
  • City were denied a stonewall penalty when McBride was fouled on 34 minutes
  • The home side were wasteful in front of goal with the 1-0 scoreline flattering the visitors
  • Sean McBride has two goals and two assists from the U19s first three games this season
  • Parke and McKinley fire U17s to victory in Dublin

U19 Northern Elite Division

Derry City 1-0 Shelbourne

A Rhys McDermott effort early in the first half gave Derry City Under-19s a narrow 1-0 victory over their Shelbourne counterparts in the Northern Elite Division fixture played at Brandywell on Saturday afternoon.

The 18-year-old full-back headed home superbly from Sean McBride’s pinpoint cross after 9 minutes to hand City their first win of the season.

In truth, the margin of victory should have been greater for the home side but for some wasteful finishing by the City forwards who suffered a frustrating afternoon in front of goal.

The Candy Stripes made a blistering start to the game and carved out the first chance on 4 minutes when Sean McBride tested visiting keeper Jack Lydon’s reflexes after some great approach play by Dylan Devine.

The First Round of the 2018 Enda McGuill Cup will see five games played with eleven teams receiving a bye into the second round.

Derry City Uner-19s fell to their first defeat of the season on Sunday afternoon, going down 3-1 to St Patrick’s Athletic in their SSE Airtricity Under-19 Northern Elite Division fixture at IT Blanchardstown.

City manager Eddie Seydak made three changes to the starting eleven that drew with Dundalk last weekend. Jason McCallion started in goals with former Keadue Rovers defender Calum Boyle slotting in at left-back, while Northern Ireland schoolboy international Jack Malone was given his competitive Under-19 debut in midfield alongside Evan Tweed and City captain Connor Gormley.

Derry City Under-19 Squad 2018

Derry City Under-19 and Under-17 development squads were both in league action at the weekend. The Under-19s played host to Dundalk on Saturday afternoon and the Under-17s made the trip to County Louth to take on the Lilywhites at Oriel Park on Sunday.

  • Two debutants named in U19 starting XI
  • McBride continues were he left off last year, scoring City’s opening goal
  • Kian McGarvey impresses as U17s go down 3-1 at Oriel Park

Under-19s: Derry City 2-2 Dundalk

Following the postponement of their opening fixture against Athlone Town almost three weeks ago, Derry City Under-19s finally got their season up and running at the weekend against Dundalk.

The City starting eleven included two debutants in defence. Goalkeeper Daniel Houghton, formerly with Carndonagh FC and centre back Ethan Harkin, who previously played for Keadue Rovers have both been promoted from last year’s Under-17 panel.

It was the visitors who broke the deadlock after just five minutes.

In their opening game, the Candy Stripes defeated Dungannon 2-0 with Jack Parke (pictured) scoring both goals.

Underage Update

It was a positive weekend for the Derry City development squads with all four sides securing wins in their respective competitions.

Derry City U19s had a fine 5-2 win over Finn Harps at Thornhill in the semi-final of the SSE Airtricity Shield competition.

Luke Neils fired Harps in front on 72 minutes before Sean McBride levelled matters with a superb 25-yard effort six minutes from time. The visitors thought they had the game won on 89 minutes when BJ Banda scored with a stunning strike from 35 yards to spark wild celebrations on the touchline.

But Harps will be bitterly disappointed they lost concentration from the restart when they failed to regroup and fell asleep. Within seconds City took advantage and were back on level terms when McBride tapped home his second from close range.

A three goal blitz in the first period of extra time stunned the visitors with City going in front for the first time when substitute Matty Doherty fired home a wonderful long range effort passed visiting keeper Jamie Bell. Moments later the game was finished as a contest when Ballybofey man McBride completed his hat-trick. McBride’s free-kick from near the touchline deceived everyone in the penalty area and ended up in the far bottom corner. 18-year-old McBride, who made his competitive debut for the Derry City first team recently against Finn Harps, brought his tally for the season to an impressive 19 goals in 22 games.

Underage fixtures week-ending October 15th

There is a busy weekend of action ahead for Derry City’s underage sides with all age groups involved.

Justin Green takes his Under-15 squad to Solar 21 Park to face Mayo on Saturday looking to finish the final few games in the inaugural Under-15 League season on a positive note. Derry defeated Mayo 2-0 back in August with a second-half brace from Finnian O’Donnell. The young Candy Stripes haven’t won in their last five outings but they can take the positive experience gained so far this year into the new full season which is scheduled to begin in March 2018.

City’s Under-17 squad make the long journey to Dublin where they will face Shelbourne in the quarter-final of the Shield at the AUL Complex on Saturday. Gary Duffy’s outfit are unbeaten against the Drumcondra side this year, drawing 1-1 in the opening game of the season before running out deserving 5-1 winners in July with goals from Caolan McLaughlin, Kian McGarvey 2, Mikey Sweeney and Daniel Ward.

The Under-19 squad under the management of John Quigg and Eddie Seydak entertain Galway United from the Southern Division in the Shield quarter-final at Wilton Park on Saturday afternoon. Derry narrowly missed out on a top-four place on the last day of the season and will face a Galway side that may feature rising star Ronan Manning and former City underage player Declan Sharkey. The winners of this tie will have home advantage in the semi-final against either Finn Harps or Shelbourne.

Meanwhile, Derry City Reserves travel to Ramelton on Sunday afternoon to face Swilly Rovers in the Ulster Senior League, Kick-Off 2pm.

The young Candy Stripes finish the season ninth in the Northern Division and will now turn their attention to next weekend’s tie against Monaghan/Cavan FP in the first round of the Shield competition.
