Trial chance for Derry kid McClean

Derry City boss Peter Hutton believes that Candystripes prospect Patrick McClean - brother of Ireland and Wigan star James - will benefit from a spell on trial with high-flying Bristol City this week.

City youngsters McClean and George Kelly have been invited over to the club, who won promotion to the Championship this week - and Hutton feels it's a good opportunity for the duo to show their potential.

"Both players have done really well this season, Georgie scoring goals and Patrick helping keep clean sheets and the success of our U19s has been significant," says Hutton.

"So it's an opportunity for them both to see at first hand what goes on within full-time clubs and what's required to progress to the next level. Both have much to learn, but their progress is being monitored."
