Derry City overcome Cobh Ramblers to capture EA Sports Cup

Derry City have won the EA Sports Cup for the 11th time in their history this afternoon.

The Candystripes were 3-1 winners over First Division side Cobh Ramblers at the Brandywell Stadium.

A goal from Ronan Hale saw Derry City take the lead after 24 minutes after a mistake from Cobh’s James McSweeney allowed Hale to beat Cobh keeper Adam Mylod at his near post.
