DERRY City are seeking to join the Donegal Schoolboys and Youth Leagues with the matter to be discussed by delegates at Monday’s annual general meeting.
Last night, Derry City representatives – including the club’s Head of Youth Academy, Paddy McCourt – met with members of the Donegal Schoolboys/Youth League committee in Letterkenny.
Derry have forwarded two proposals for consideration.
In correspondence to affiliated clubs, the Donegal Schoolboys/League secretary Steve Coll has outlined Derry City’s proposals.
The Brandywell club have requested that their Under-14 be allowed to play ‘development matches’ within the Letterkenny North West Division.
Derry City have also asked that they be allowed to enter their Under-16 team in the Under-18 Youth League in 2020.
“Both requests can be opened for discussion under AOB at the Donegal Schoolboys/Youth League AGM Monday 25th November,” clubs have been advised.
“A further meeting between Letterkenny/North West clubs and the Derry City FC delegation, to discuss the 1st proposal in more depth, was also requested by both LK/NW representatives, and Derry City F.C.”
