By Adrian Rutherford

The family of tragic Derry City captain Ryan McBride has announced that musician Phil Coulter will headline an event to launch a foundation set up in his memory.

The 27-year-old footballer was found dead at home in March.

The Ryan McBride Foundation will be officially launched later this month with a star-studded dinner and concert at the Everglades Hotel in the city.

It aims to support and inspire young players to achieve what Ryan had accomplished.

Ryan's sister Caitlin McBride said: "We are overwhelmed by the support we have received and are honoured to launch the Ryan McBride Foundation to help keep Ryan's memory alive and to help support local up and coming footballers in realising their potential."

Coulter added: "I am honoured to headline the event which will officially launch the Ryan McBride Foundation. Ryan was an excellent role model for the youth of today, and through the foundation his memory will live on and he will continue to inspire local footballers."
