After a week of action from Derry county teams and the local club scene, here is our team of the week (ending Sunday, August 1).

1 - Peter McKinney (Kilrea senior) - Kilrea ended Drumsurn's unbeaten run and McKinney made a brilliant save to deny Tiarnán McHugh

2 - Sara Casey (Derry U16) - She lined out with number 15, but played an excellent role at the heart of Derry's defence

3 - Gavin Donnelly (Desertmartin senior) - Cormac Quigley has scored nine goals this season, but he got no change out of Donnelly.

4 - Patrick McGurk (Derry minor) - The skipper was excellent against Armagh star player Aaron O'Neill and got Derry on the attack.

5 - Lee Brady (Bellaghy senior) - On his senior debut for Bellaghy, Brady was a vital link from defence, scored a point and was involved in the move leading to the Tones' penalty.

6 - Kevin Johnson (Dungiven senior) - On his first start for Dungiven in three years, he capped off a fine performance with a goal.
