Finn Harps play-off hero Harry Ascroft has left the Donegal side and signed for a club in Australia.
Ascroft scored an extra time goal last Friday night to give Harps the 2-0 win over Drogheda United in the promotion-relegation play-off second leg that secured Ollie Horgan’s team’s Premier Division status.
The 24-year-old joined Harps earlier this year from Malta club, Balzan, who Jacob Borg also played for prior to signing for Harps.
After an injury-hit start to his Harps career, Ascroft had a big part in the 2019 season.
Ascroft scored the winner when Harps defeated Derry City 1-0 in late July. A week later, Ascroft netted in a 1-0 win over Bohemians.
Last week, the Australian-born Ascroft proved the hero of the hour last week as Harps stayed in the top flight.
However, he has now signed for Dandenong Thunder FC, who compete in the National Premier Leagues Victoria.
Ascroft has been capped by Australia at Under-20 level.Tags:
