Buncrana Cup

Donegal 0-7 Derry 1-7

We were delighted to host the final of the Buncrana Cup in the Scarvey on Saturday.

Well done to Derry on becoming the Buncrana Cup Champions for 2019.

The Oakleaf County led by three points at half-time, Derry 0-5 Donegal 0-2.

The first and only, but decisive, goal of the came from Derry forward Darragh Wade 3 minutes into the second half.

Derry then stretched it to a 7 point lead, but to Donegal’s credit, they fought back and refused to lay down and managed to bring it back to a one score game when the referee blew the final whistle.
