18 years old Festy Ebosele who played his football with Moyne Rangers made his first-team debut for Derby County, coming on in the 64th minute, in Saturday’s FA Cup 3rd Round game against non-league side Chorley, who won 2-0, in freezing conditions at Victory Park.
His former Enniscorthy club issued the following statement last night; “Congratulations to former Moyne Rangers player Festy Ebosele on making his 1st team debut for Derby County today in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Making his return from a three-month injury Festy showed his potential when introduced and hopefully he can finish the season strongly and break through and cement his place in Wayne Rooney’s (English and Manchester United legend) squad. Well done today Festy and all the best from everyone associated with our club.”
