Ronan Curtis signs two-year contract at Derry City


RONAN CURTIS HAS signed a new two-year contract at Derry City.

The 19-year-old St Johnston man is one of the first players to be tied up by new manager Kenny Shiels.

Curtis broke through to the Derry first team in 2015 and has made a dozen appearances. He scored his first senior goal in the final game of the 2015 season, a 4-1 loss to Longford Town at the City Calling Stadium.

Curtis is a regular feature of Derry City’s team in the Ulster Senior League and is a highly-rated prospect, whose brothers Blaine and Declan have turned out for Finn Harps.

Curtis, who played his schoolboy football with Kildrum Tigers, played in last night’s 1-1 draw against Institute at Brandywell.

Finn Harps’ Josh Mailey, who is out of contract at Finn Park, played on trial for Derry last night, sparking fears that the Letterkenny man is about to make an exit from Finn Park.

Ramelton native Barry McNamee had already been confirmed for 2016 having signed a two-year term earlier this year.
