Soccer – Harps Chairman Appeals For Support

Finn Harps Chairman, Joey O’Leary, has appealed for supporters to get involved in the day to day running of the club and describes the future for the club as “pretty bleak” if more people aren’t willing to come on board to help.  O’Leary is one of only five members on the current board and is actively seeking to bring on two new members – a Finance Officer and an Operations/Facilities Officer.
Harps held a Special General Meeting in Stranorlar on Sunday in which the Shareholders ratified changes to the clubs constitution, but the main item on the agenda was to discuss an emergency plan to address the clubs increasingly difficult financial situation.
The board feel that they need in the region of €300,000 between now and the end of the year just to see the season through and in the current climate that will be difficult to achieve.
