City of Derry coach Terry McMaster was a happy man after their impressive 36-0 win over Bective Rangers on Saturday.

The Drumahoe PS principal conceded that will scoring six tries and collecting a bounce point, he was just as thrilled that his side manage to shut-out Bective.

“City of Derry over the years could always score points, but they also leaked points, so for us to get a 36-0 win was massive for us, so it was nearly as pleasing to prevent Bective from getting anything, as the 36 points that we scored,” he stated.

McMaster may have six players - Chris Cooper, Richard Baird, David Funston, Richard McCarter and Christopher Barber - return for their USL game against Dungannon, on Saturday, February 14.

“We might give the boys some game time against Dungannon, but we’ll see what the physio says and we also might have a few younger players, who have impressed me, in the side for that game.”
