We will be working with underage players from age 10 up to 18 and working closely with schools, clubs and the Schoolboys Leagues in Donegal.”Finn Harps Manager, Peter Hutton commented: “The development of an underage structure is extremely important for the club to progress and strengthen going forward. “The Northwest region has always been a hotbed for young talented players and we now hope to help nurture that talent and give young players a platform from which they can reach their potential. We look forward to working with the various footballing stakeholders throughout the Northwest in what will be exciting times ahead for all involved.” FINN HARPS SET UP AMBITIOUS YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PLAN was last modified: April 26th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:finn harpsYouth Development Planlast_img
