Derry City ask supporters not to gather around Brandywell

Derry City Football Club is appealing to supporters not to gather on the perimeter wall around the ground or outside the houses on the Brandywell Road during matches.

"We completely understand and share supporters' frustrations at not being able to attend games.

The fact is however that those gatherings present a number of health and safety issues for everyone involved.

As a community club we also need to be very mindful of the local residents whose access and privacy also need to be respected.

Derry City Football Club is asking for your co-operation on this matter as we await the safe return of supporters into the stadium."
