Derry had a frustrating 2015 season at Minor Grade.
Minor squad that faced Fermanagh in 2015
While early indications were that things were looking good, a combination of events led to the season petering out to a disappointing end.
The Under 18 side were faced with games against Cavan, Fermanagh, Armagh and Monaghan and while the challenge against Cavan was always going to be a tough obstacle the panel performed admirably in their second match, a home tie against Fermanagh.
Scores from 2015 were:
Derry 0.03 Cavan 6.27
Derry 6.24 Fermanagh 0.03
Armagh 11.18 Derry 1.05
