Finn Harps have announced the signing of Australian-born defender Harry Ascroft.
Ascroft joins from Maltese Premier League side Balzan.
Harps manager Ollie is pleased to have secured the services of Ascroft who has been capped once at U20 level with Australia.
“We are pleased that Harry has agreed to join us,” Horgan said.
“It’s a new challenge for him and one he is looking forward to now. Harry has played at a decent level and has a fair degree of experience for a 23-year-old so hopefully he can push on now with us.”
Ascroft is looking forward to the new challenge in the League of Ireland.
He said: “Jacob Borg is a good friend of mine and played with me in Malta. He spoke highly of the job Ollie Horgan was doing at Finn Harps. Jacob really enjoyed his time last season with the team getting promotion.
“Ollie came over to see me play in Malta and we had a chat afterwards. I was impressed with what he had to say and I’m now looking forward to playing with Finn Harps in the Premier Division.”
