Derry City supporter Finn Doherty with his uncle Stephen met boss Declan Devine and new signing Greg Sloggett when visiting club's pop-up shop on Shipquay Street, on Saturday.

After completing the signing of midfielder Greg Sloggett last weekend, Devine is hopeful that a few more new faces will link up with the ‘Candy Stripes’ this week.

“There will be more movement in the coming days,” insisted the Derry boss.

“As I said already, we won’t be signing players unless they are the right fit, there are nine weeks to the season starts.

“A whole new list of players will become available in January and we have got players who are out of contracts at different clubs. We have players who will be free agents and players who are desperate to come but we have to weigh up all our options.

“As staff, we have always said that when we had our recruitment meetings.

“Greg Sloggett was on top of that list but we are still going through the list and we have a lot more names that we would like to bring to the club. There have been a lot of conversions but we will do our best at our own pace and we’ll bring people to the club that definitely fit the bill.”

Meanwhile the club’s final lotto numbers for this week were as follows: 6, 15, 22 and 24. The jackpot is £1,000. The next lotto draw takes place on Monday, January 7th.

The club’s new pop-up shop at the bottom of Shipquay Street will remain open from today (Tuesday) right through to until Christmas Eve from 12.00 noon until 9.00 pm.
