The Friends of Finn Harps have asked the public to back the club as the first team looks forward competing in the play-offs for the first time in 8 seasons.
Supporters have been asked to pledge €20 to a promotion challenge fund with contributors receiving a souvenir poster signed by the squad. Everyone will be acknowledged on www.finnharps.com and in the official match programme for the home play-off match on the 30th October.
There has been huge progress at Finn Harps FC in 2015 with the team highest finishing in its highest league position by a Harps team since 2007.
Harps have a superb home record with the fewest goals conceded of any senior club in the League of Ireland in 2015. Harps have kept an incredible 16 clean sheets in 2015! The players have achieved the above despite the toughest travel schedule of any league of Ireland team – over 8200km (not including travelling to training) since the start of the season.
FHFC is working hard to prepare the next generation of local talent for senior football. Harps U19’s sit top of their league following four wins from their opening four games.
The Finn Harps Schools Programme continues to deliver coaching days and an innovative programme promoting healthy lifestyle plus road safety to schools all over the county.
The Finn Harps Academy will again be expanding in 2016 so young players can receive tailored coaching drills which compliments the training they receive at their clubs.
Finn Harps is run on a 100% voluntary basis and is 100% owned, administered and run by supporters.
Harps Manager Ollie Horgan says “Hopefully people can see the hard work that is going in, on and off the pitch, so we can provide Donegal & Northwest with a well-run club that everyone can be proud of. Most are aware that gate receipts will only cover a percentage of the finance required to meet costs, so like all League of Ireland clubs ongoing support for fundraisers is vital. We will continue to do everything we can to bring Finn Harps forward, not just with the first team but with the whole club."
