It's almost five months since Derry City captain Ryan McBride passed away.

The 27-year-old, who was born in the shadow of The Brandywell played in the team's opening four games of the season, before he died hours after a 4-0 win over Drogheda United.

Since McBride's death, his life has been at the forefront of Derry's season, with the team wearing the number five on their jerseys in his honour.

On Monday afternoon, the Derry native was honoured at the local youth club with a mural on the club's wall.

In a day based around the Brandywell community, Derry City's players were in attendance, and played street football with children from the area.

Along with the players, manager Kenny Shiels kept a watching brief over the matches.

The memory of McBride will never be forgotten in the city after his tragic passing. The mural at the Long Tower Youth Club is one small step in that.
