A record number of teams from Inishowen will contest this year’s Foyle Cup tournament which kicks off all over the North West this Monday July 21st.

In all 18 teams from the peninsula will be involved in the week long festival of football where the Inishowen Academy U13s won their section of the tournament outright last year.

Cockhill Celtic, Buncrana Hearts, Clonmany Shamrocks and Quigley’s Point Swifts will contest the Under 10s section where all the games will be played in Derry.

Candonagh’s Under 11s, coached by the club’s new senior manager Daniel Nolan, will join the two Inishowen Academy teams in this age group who will play 9 a-side games.

The Academy will also have teams in the U12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s and 19s category where many sides will have home advantage with games being hosted in venues around the peninsula including Buncrana, Cockhill, Moville and Greencastle.

Inishowen sides are also tipped to challenge for the top prize in the ladies section where Greencastle and Illies are involved.

The Ballybrack club have also entered the U13 girls section where they will play one of the two Inishowen Academy sides in that section in a local derby in Creggan.
