Candystripes ejected from League of Ireland

Bad news for fans of Derry City FC this evening as after a crisis meeting with the League of Ireland their contract to play Premier Division football has been terminated. The ongoing financial crisis which has led to the non-payment of players and other creditors for the past few weeks may soon lead to a winding-up application. Whatever your sporting allegiances, it’s very dissapointing to see a sporting institution with a proud history in our second city face going to the wall.
