Harps’ U15s meet Bray at the Moss

The Finn Harps’ U15s welcome Bray Wanderers to the Moss, Drumoghill tomorrow (kick-off 2pm).  Paul McBride’s boys picked up their first win in phase two last weekend defeating northwest neighbours, Derry City.

Harps’ assistant coach, Trevor Gorman, was pleased with the attitude shown against The Candystripes, “It was good to come out on top. We’ve had better performances this season and we’ve ended up with nothing, so to get something is quite pleasing. They’ve been working hard recently and it paid off.”

Bray are a place above Harps in the elite phase and they visit Donegal on the back of a home draw against Sligo Rovers last weekend. Head coach, Paul McBride, although looking forward to the match, remains cautious of the Seagull’s visit. “Our last meeting against Bray showed the boys that a lapse of concentration at this level punishes you. They’ve a team littered with Irish underage internationals and we need to be alert at all times. A number of our lads took their opportunity last weekend and competition for a starting place has never been so tight.”

Tomorrow’s match will be the first of four in a busy two-week period for the Finn Harps 15s.
