Derry City have unveiled their home kit for the 2018 Premier Division season, complete with a heartfelt tribute to the late skipper Ryan McBride.


McBride tragically passed away in March of last year less than 24 hours after captaining the side to a victory over Drogheda United at City's temporary home of Maginn Park in Buncrana.


And the club have opted to pay respect to their skipper with the inclusion of McBride's squad number – five – in the breast of the new jersey.



The new jersey – the first to be produced by Adidas in over 20 years – was unveiled by the club at a launch event in the City Hotel in Derry on Thursday night.


The slick design has already won over admiration from fans of the club and the league in general alike and it promises to be one of the most popular strips the club has had in recent times.




The kit will be available from the Rath More club shop from 10am on Saturday morning, February 3rd, and online from Monday the 5th.
