It was a memorable evening for City debutante Declan Glass who scored a first half hat-trick to announce himself to the home support just a matter of hours after completing his loan move from Dundee United.

The attacking midfielder will remain on Foyleside until the end of November and he's made a blistering start to his City loan spell. Glass set up James Akintunde for the opening goal after just eight minutes.

He was quickly in on the goalscoring act himself as he volleyed into the net with his left foot after a neat pass from Patrick McEleney. A right foot finish from Sadou Diallo's pass three minutes later completed a quickfire brace.

And when City skipper McEleney handed him the ball when Brandon Kavanagh was brought down inside the penalty area, there was no doubt the gifted playmaker would complete his treble from the spotkick.

Akintunde netted his second in the second half and debutante Mark Connolly marked his first Brandywell appearance with a close range finish before striker Jamie McGonigle finished the scoring late on.
