"Go is a perfect partner for Derry Ladies Football and we have a shared vision of a positive future for our sport. Go’s backing of Derry Ladies is hugely valued and appreciated, and I say that not only on behalf of Derry LGFA but also for all 22 LGFA clubs in Derry.

"With all that positivity comes an opportunity to tell the story of a modern, engaging and exciting Derry LGFA environment and we look forward to doing just that with all our partners including our new title sponsor GO.”
