Paddy Bradley could be added to McBride’s Derry ticket

FORMER Derry star Paddy Bradley could be part of Johnny McBride’s managerial ticket should the former Oakleaf player go forward as a candidate for the vacant Derry managerial position.

McBride has been nominated for the position, as he was in 2017, and the addition of Bradley would give his potential management team reach punch.

Paul McIver has ruled him self out of contention while Mickey Donnelly who has been linked to the role.
