Congratulations to Ronan Curtis of Derry City, who has been named on the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad for a training camp this week that will include friendlies against Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The 20-year-old St Johnston man had a superb season with Derry City’s first team under Kenny Shiels and has been rewarded with a call-up to Noel King’s Under-21 squad.
Curtis played with Kildrum Tigers at schoolboy level before he moved to Swilly Rovers and then onto Derry City and, having graduated from the Candystripes’ Ulster Senior League team, stepped into the first team ranks.

Everyone associated with the Ulster Senior League would like to congratulate Cockhill Celtic’s Garbhan Friel on winning the Ulster Senior light-heavyweight title on Friday night.
As well as being a talented striker in the USL, Friel also stars in the ring and defeated Cathal Browne in the final in Belfast.

A delegate meeting for Ulster Senior League clubs will be held on Monday night next, November 14, in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny, at 8pm. All clubs are asked to be represented.

Clubs are reminded to submit their weekly reports and club news to the Ulster Senior League PRO, Chris McNulty, at chrismcnulty86@gmail.com
