The Candy Stripes’ 12-2 win goes into the record books as the biggest winning margin in a competitive fixture since the club was formed in 1928.
Back in December 1964, City defeated Cliftonville 10-1 at Brandywell with goals from Fay Coyle 4, Ron Wood, Joe Wilson 2, Matt Doherty jr 2, and Jimmy McGeough.
But today’s result creates a new record and sends Kenny Shiels’ side into the history books.
The City scorers today were Ally Roy 4, Aaron McEneff 2, Ronan Hale 2, Shane McNamee 2, Cathal Farren (pictured), Kevin McHattie.
Congratulations to the Under-19 graduates Shane McNamee and Cathal Farren on scoring their first competitive goals for the club.
Former Derry City under-19 captain Sam Todd has joined Donegal outfit Finn Harps on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old centre back will look to gain some valuable first-team experience by joining the SSE Airtricity League First Division club rather than continue to feature for Derry’s reserve side in the Ulster Senior League.
Todd was a key member of the under-19 panel during the 2017 season, making 20 appearances and scoring one goal.
