After plenty of speculation in recent weeks, Ollie Horgan has finally signed an extension to his contract and will remain at Finn Harps for a further two years.
Horgan, who’s been at the helm of the club since 2013, has performed minor miracles at the Ballybofey based club in that time. He succeeded in guiding Harps to an unexpected promotion in 2015, and repeated the feat again in 2018.
Following a difficult season this year Harps defeated Drogheda United in the promotion/relegation playoff to remain a Premier Division outfit for the 2020 season.
Horgan knows that the club will find it tough going, but says his side, once it’s put together, won’t shy away from the battle: “It has been very positive after speaking with board members and also people outside the club. There is a great energy and hope that we can kick on now.
“There is a lot of hard work to be put in beyond myself and Paul Hegarty by others behind the scenes. I have high hopes we’re headed in the right direction. We’re used to challenges and we won’t shy away from it”
Club chairman Sean Quinn was thrilled to tie his man down: “We are delighted to have confirmed Ollie’s position for at least another two years and I am sure it is welcome news to Harps supporters everywhere.
“It is now imperative that we all work together to ensure we can offer Ollie and his management team the resources they require for the 2020 season.”
