Foyle Cup tournament kicks off in Derry with 216 teams involved

The Foyle Cup youth football tournament began in Londonderry on Monday evening with 216 teams involved this year.

Matches will take place at 31 venues with teams from as far afield as the USA taking part.

For the fourth successive year, Coleraine native Russell Stirling has taken his Connecticut-based Everton America team to the Maiden City tournament.

"The welcome you get from the people of the city and the organisation of this tournament are both tremendous," said Russell.
