' Derry City'
J. C. Towers
In 1929 the Derry City Football and Athletic Club, Ltd., was registered as a limited liability company and joined the Irish Football Association, making Derry City the youngest club in the Irish League. Football enthusiasts may remember that Derry was represented before the war in senior football by a club called Derry Celtic.
Joseph McCleery was appointed manager of the newly-formed club and in less than a month succeeded in putting a good team in the field. At the end of the 1931-32 season he went to manage Glenavon and was succeeded by Billy Gillespie , once a Sheffield United and a famous Irish international player. Gillespie played continuously for Sheffield United for twenty years, with the exception of the war years when he served in the Army-an outstanding performance for a professional footballer.
Several players have been capped for Ireland while with the Club, including Bobby Irvine, Sam Russell , Jimmie Kelly , Robert Browne , and Matthew Doherty.
