All EA SPORTS Cup First Round fixtures have been postponed as a mark of respect to the late Derry City captain Ryan McBride.

The SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture between Galway United and Derry City, scheduled for Saturday, March 25th has also been postponed, following the earlier postponement of the Derry City and Limerick match.

The EA SPORTS Cup First Round fixtures were set to be played tomorrow night but will now be rescheduled following the sudden passing of City captain McBride.

Director of Competitions Fran Gavin said: “Irish football is currently in deep shock at the news of the sudden passing of Derry City captain Ryan McBride.

“As a mark of respect, we’ve decided to postpone all EA SPORTS Cup fixtures tomorrow evening to give clubs and officials around the country time to grieve his loss.

“We’ll announce new dates and times for the fixtures in due course.”
