Tonight we paid tribute to former Derry City forward Mark Farren who passed away on the 3rd of February 2016. We decided to use a play on the lyrics of The Undertones song Teenage Kicks which has been adopted by the Derry City supporters.
“I need excitement, oh I need it bad
And it's the best I've ever had
I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night”
There was also a minutes applauds in honour of Mark Farren as Rovers presented a wreath to the captain of Derry City before the game.
