Cup named in honour of Derry and Glenavon striker Mark Farren
Former Derry City and Glenavon striker Mark Farren, who died in February, is to have a new cup named in his honour.
Derry's leading goalscorer passed away after a battle with cancer aged 33.
The Airtricity League is recognising his contribution to the game with the Under-17 Mark Farren Memorial Cup.
"It's a fitting way to commemorate Mark's memory," said FAI spokesman Fran Gavin, "all young players should aspire to have a career and conduct themselves in the same manner he did".
