Finn Harps sign goalkeeper Harry Doherty

Harry Doherty

Former Republic of Ireland U-19 international goalkeeper Harry Doherty has joined Finn Harps.

The Cockhill man's arrival at Finn Park comes just a week after Ciaran Gallagher agreed a new deal with Harps.

It means the Donegal club will boast two highly rated goalkeepers as they prepare for the start of the 2017 season.

Doherty comes in as a likely replacement for Richard Brush who has been strongly linked with a move to Ballinamallard United.

Doherty was formerly on the books of both Charlton Athletic and Brighton & Hove Albion.

A talented player at underage level with his home club Cockhill Celtic, he has played for the Republic of Ireland at U-17 and U-19 level.

He won his first U-19 cap against the Netherlands in September 2014 and also played against Sweden the following month

The 20-year-old has been playing for Cockhill Celtic this season in the Ulster Senior League and featured in Sunday's victory over Finn Harps Reserves.

He becomes the second new face to join Ollie Horgan's Harps ahead of the new campaign following the capture of Danny Morrissey from Cork City.
