Finn Harps have confirmed the appointment of Paul Hegarty as assistant manager.

The former Harps and Derry City manager has agreed to take on the role which was vacated by Gavin Dykes, who left Finn Park to take over as head Coach at Ballinamallard United FC.

Harps manager Ollie Horgan told “It was important to find a successor to Gavin as quickly as possible so we can work on preparations for the vital matches we have coming up after the break. It was always going to be difficult to find someone who could replace someone of Gavin’s experience, but Paul certainly fits the bill. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and he will be a huge asset as we battle to secure our premier division status.”
