QUB NI Vs Derry City


MARKING Community Relations week, Queen's University Northern Ireland supporters club played Derry City in a challenge match.

With both clubs member bases traditionally drawn from opposite side of the NI divide the match offered a chance for the two sides to get to know each other a bit better.

Spokesperson Rodney Gilmour, secretary of the NI supporters club said that he hoped this match would be the first of many adding that: "Our club is very supportive of the IFA's Football for all initiative to bring both sides of the community together."

He added that "Hopefully this will encourage some Derry City supporters to come along to Northern Ireland games down at Windsor Park."

A Derry City spokesperson has been contacted for comment however was unavailable. We will post their statement when one becomes available.

2-2 A late equaliser saves Derry City blushes. Continued failure to secure a win raises questions over how much longer the NI Supporters will let McSparron stay at the helm.
