Derry City and Finn Harps played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw in a fundraisining friendly at Maginn Park in aid of the Inishowen Flood Relief Fund on Friday night.

 

More than 100 people had to be rescued from the peninsula following torrential rain last month that left bridges and roads destroyed and hundreds of people homeless.

 

It's one of two friendlies the Candystripes have been involved with over the past week as they also faced Institute to raise money after the Irish League club's Riverside Stadium was flooded.

 

Derry's Ronan Curtis and Finn Harps winger Pascal Millien both saw efforts well-saved during a first half that ended scoreless.

 

The Candystripes' new Slovakian singing Jozef Dolny opened the scoring with his first Derry goal after the break, finishing neatly following a lovely backheel from Rory Patterson.

 

And Harps got their equaliser shortly before the finish as Eric Grimes couldn't hold substitute BJ Banda's shot and Danny Morrissey stabbed home the loose ball.
