Fingers crossed I can stay injury free this year and help the club push on.”Harps boss Ollie Horgan echoed Timlin’s hopes for greater fortune in 2020. Horgan said: “Mark had an awful time with injuries last season but in fairness to him he worked at it and did all he could to get back on the pitch and help the lads.  “He’s probably one of our more creative players so with a bit of luck he can keep fit and give us a big boost going forward”.Timlin joins Mark Anthony McGinley and Gareth Harkin in penning new deals at the club, while young Stephen Doherty had already been giving a pro contract earlier this year.Harps, however, have said goodbyes to the likes of Keith Cowan, Mikey Place, Nathan Boyle, Raffaele Cretaro, Ciaran Gallagher, Harry Ascroft and Daniel O’Reilly.Mark Timlin pledges future to Finn Harps was last modified: December 10th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:2019 League of Ireland Premier Division2020 League of Ireland Premier Divisionbuncranafinn harpsMark TimlinOllie Horganlast_img read more
