Finn Harps ace Paddy McCourt was listed among the world’s top footballers in a presentation at the Opta Pro Forum 2018.
Opta, are a sports analytics company who provide data for a wide range of sports across the world.
At the Pro Forum, currently being held in Euston Square, a breakdown was shown of various statistics from the world of football.
And listed in the top ten for ‘most completed take-ons’ was McCourt, just behind Middlesbrough’s Adama Traoré.
McCourt, a 19-times capped Northern Ireland international, signed for Harps just before the start of the 2017 season and the Derry native has agreed a new one-year contract at Finn Park, despite the club’s relegation to the First Division.
