Derry City played their first game at their temporary new home in Buncrana on Wednesday night.

The Candystrips beat Ulster Senior League side Letterkenny Rovers 3-0 in a pre-season friendly tie at Maginn Park.

The club are using the ground as redevelopment work takes place at the Brandywell.

City Manager Kenny Shiels used the game to run his eye over a number of trail players.

Thierry Kiesse-Baptiste fired Derry ahead in the 3rd minute.

Striker Cathal Farren added the second late in the game from the penalty spot on 87 minutes while another new face Antonio Rikkas from Greece bagged a third before time was up.
