Tributes have been paid to another well-known Derry City fan who has passed away.

John Campbell died at his Drumleck Gardens home in Shantallow on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Derry City said they wish to send their deepest condolences to John Campbell's family,

"John was a founder member of the Pride of Northside Supporters Club and travelled all over Ireland and beyond to support his beloved Candystripes," the club spokesperson said.

"John was an absolute gentleman who will be very sorely missed by all at the club. May his gentle soul Rest in Peace."
