Liam Burns’ side played out a 1-1 draw against away to Derry City FC in their last SSE Airtricity U17 League encounter.
Burns said: I’m very happy to come away with a draw because Derry is always a difficult place to go. With circumstances ahead of the game with the weather and the pitch were quite bad but the lads showed great attitude towards the game, especially with the venue being changed from the Brandywell.
“I thought the players put in an excellent effort in really terrible conditions. We would have loved to have won the game obviously but a draw is probably a fair enough reflection on the game.
“Chris McFadden finished off an excellent team goal. There was some lovely build up play then the ball came to Josh Hanna who came off the centre half after a lovely bit of skill, Chris made a late run into the box for a great finish.
“We are going in to a two week break now so that will give us a chance to get bodies back and hopefully by our next league game against St. Pats at home, we will have a fully fit squad to pick from.”

Mick Neville’s team defeated Derry City FC 3-2 at Oriel Park in their last Northern Elite Division clash.
Neville said: “It was a very tight and difficult game. We are delighted to win it against a really good Derry side. We struggled in the first half to get anywhere near them but in the second half we got after them a bit more.
“We got an equaliser from Pablo Cavalcante, a good header at the back post after Nedas Maciulaitis set him up. Then we got ourselves ahead with Lido Lotefa, a new signing of ours from Bohs. It was another good finish from him from inside the left hand side of the box, he cut past the centre half and scored. Then Jack O’Keeffe scored the third with a really good finish.
We tried to see out the game to the end with about 5 or 6 minutes to go but the Derry substitute scored an absolute screamer with 3 minutes to go. That put us on the back foot a bit and we were nervous for the last couple of minutes but we held out for a really good win.
That puts us 4 points between ourselves and Derry now, keeps us in 4th and closes the gap on the 2 out of the 3 that are ahead of us.”
