Derry City are delighted to confirm that Aaron Splaine and Alistair Roy have received their international clearance and will be part of the match day squad for tonight’s fixture against Limerick.
Aaron Splaine is a 21 year old Scottish midfielder who was most recently with Dunfermline.
The young midfielder has been training with the Derry side for a number of weeks following his release from the Scottish side.
The midfielder started his career with Kilmarnock before moving to Dunfermline.
However the youngster was unlucky to suffer a serious injury in November of last year and was unable to break back into the team.
He was released from the Pars at the end of May and was in attendance at the Brandywell to see City draw 0-0 with Cork earlier in the season.
Following discussion with the City boss the player has been training with the first team and played in the midweek friendly against Cliftonville.
Alistair Roy has also agreed to join the Candystripes, returning to the League of Ireland after a spell with Sligo Rovers earlier in the season.
The young forward was one of the scorers when the Bit O’Red were visitors to Brandywell recently, netting a goal in the 2-0 win.
The 21 year old was on the books of Hearts of Midlothian but has spent most of his contract on loan in the lower divisions in Scotland.
The youngster played 17 times for Sligo Rovers before the conclusion of his loan spell.
As with Aaron Splaine, Roy played in the midweek friendly against Cliftonville.
