Over 100 City Cubs attend the 2018 launch event.
The Derry City supporters club for primary school children, now partnered with local creative agency Wurkhouse, held their launch event yesterday at the Long Tower Youth & Community Centre. Occurring during the school mid-term break, it was a chance for the cubs to collect their season ticket, goody bag and to meet Kenny Shiels and some players.
Aaron McEneff, Rory Patterson and Gerard Doherty participated in a fun, sprawling kickabout with the kids before each cub got their chance to get a photo with the players and manager.
Out of the 141 kids signed up for the City Cubs this season, 121 came to collect their packs with some travelling from as far as South Armagh. Preparations are underway for integrating the cubs into the opening game at the new Brandywell and the kids can’t wait.
A selection of the photos from yesterday’s event can be seen below.
