Whitecaps FC Saskatchewan Academy earns win over Derry City FC in Northern Ireland

The Whitecaps FC Saskatchewan Academy Centre boys are in the midst of a competitive trip to Ireland to expand their soccer horizons.

They have taken a tour of the country's National Football Stadium at Windsor Park guided by the Irish Football Association, and watched a professional match of Derry City FC on Friday.

On Sunday, the boys played the U-17 academy team of Derry City FC at their Brandywell Stadium and came away with a 2-1 victory. Charles Sawi and Seamus McGettigan scored the goals to top off a great performance from our boys.
