Greenlough's Enda Lynn has played more games in league and championship for Derry than any other player in the last 10 years.

In a study by the County Derry Post, from the appearances from John Brennan's first league game until Derry's 2020 defeat in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, 130 players have represented Derry.

Of the total, 15 come from intermediate clubs, based on the clubs' championship gradings over the decade and Ballinderry, with 16 players, are the club with the greatest representation.

None come from the junior ranks, with Steelstown trio Eoghan Concannon, Neil Forester and Ben McCarron the only players from the city.  McCarron has yet to feature in the championship, having made his league debut this season.

Here are the list of players who have played for Derry, in league and championship, since 2011.
