Funston in action for Finn Harps


DUNGANNON Swifts have announced the signing of Finn Harps midfielder Michael Funston.

The Letterkenny man joined the League of Ireland side from Bonagee United in 2004 and quickly became a permanent fixture in the starting XI alongside Tony Gorman.

The pair guided Harps to the First Division championship in their first season with Funston going on to clock up almost 200 first team appearances and was their leading scorer in 2009.

The Swifts official website reports that the 25-year-old has been training at Stangmore Park for a while and has impressed boss Dixie Robinson with his hard work.

It is expected he will make his debut for the club in the home Carling Premiership game v. Donegal Celtic on January 4th.
