Over the festive period we went through the Derry Journal archives to select some of the North West’s top athletes.
From the likes of Olympians Aileen Reid, Liam Ball and Neil McLaughlin to Republic of Ireland internationals James McClean, Shane Duffy and Darron Gibson.
We also have Ireland cricketers William Porterfield, Boyd Rankin, Craig Young and Decker Curry, while boxers Connor Coyle and Paul McCloskey also feature.
