Underage fixtures week-ending October 15th

Posted on Updated on

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.

Caolan McLaughlin scored a brace in Derry’s comfortable 4-0 win against Monaghan/Cavan FP on Saturday.

Under-17s: Derry City 4-0 Monaghan/Cavan FP

Derry City booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Under-17 Shield competition with a comprehensive 4-0 win against Monaghan/Cavan FP at Wilton Park on Saturday afternoon.

City almost opened the scoring on 25 minutes when Derry’s driving force in midfield Jack Malone unleashed a stinging 25-yard effort to the top corner but visiting keeper David Hayes produced a wonderful save to push the ball over the bar.

The deadlock was broken on 41 minutes when City centre-back Ronan Boyce headed across goal to Inishowen man Mikey Friel who made no mistake converting from two yards to net his fourth goal in his last three games.

Derry doubled their advantage ten minutes into the second half when Friel was adjudged to have been fouled in the box. Caolan McLaughlin stepped up to calmly roll the ball past Hayes.

The home side continued to dominate possession and wrapped the game up as a contest on 65 minutes when Jack Malone waltzed his way into the box before firing a deflected shot past Hayes.

Caolan McLaughlin finished the scoring by tapping home his 11th goal of the season on the stroke of full time.

Gary Duffy’s side travel to Dublin on Saturday to play Shelbourne in the last eight of the competition with the winners having home advantage against Wexford or Athlone in the semi-final.

Derry City U17s: Daniel Houghton; Jack McLaughlin, Ronan Boyce, Danny McGlynn, Calum Boyle; Jack Parke, Jack Malone, Daniel Ward, Fionn McClure; Caolan McLaughlin, Mikey Friel.

Subs Used: Ethan Harkin, Adian McHugh, Adam Taggart, Kian McGarvey, Aaron McGurk.

The new National League will provide another step on Ireland’s elite player pathway. Its establishment will bridge the gap between schoolboy football which runs up to U16 level and the SSE Airtricity U19 league which is now firmly established as a springboard for young talented players into adult football.

The SSE Airtricity U17 National League will offer elite players, many of whom will have graduated from the FAI’s Emerging Talent Programme, their first opportunity to play in a national league, as well as a chance to train, practice and play at an elite level in this age group.
