Finn Harps can confirm that Damian Duffy has departed the club for NIFL Championship side Dergview FC.
Duffy, a Finn Harps Academy graduate, made 12 appearances for the club last season. The Gleneely man scored his first senior goal away to Longford Town back in June, sealing a 3-2 win for Harps.
Darren Murphy told club media: “Damian and I had a conversation over the offseason and we felt at this stage in his career that he needs to be playing regular first-team football. I’ve had a good chat with Emmet Friars, the Dergview manager who I’ve known a long time and Emmet was very keen to get Damian in the door to fight his way into the team
We have an agreement in place for Damian to go to Dergview now and hopefully he can get that first team experience that is vital for the stage he is at in his development. The door is by no means closed for Damian and he knows that. We’ve had a good conversation, I think he’s a great kid with a fantastic attitude and willingness to learn. I’d like to wish him the very best with the move.”
