Finn Harps have confirmed that Sean Houston has agreed a new deal with the club for the 2017 season.
The news, which follows the capture of former Celtic midfielder Paddy McCourt, comes as a boost for the Ballybofey side ahead of their season opener against Cork City on Friday.
The 27-year-old midfielder scored seven goals in 27 league appearances for Harps last season and was subsequently named the club’s Player of the Year.
Manager Ollie Horgan is hoping for more of the same from the Letterkenny man in 2017 as they look to ensure their place in the league.
“Sean had some matters to get sorted out before he signed and I’m pleased now that he is on board ahead of the Cork game,” said Horgan.
“He was a key man for us last season and got us some vital goals. We will need the same and more from Sean this year if we are to be in with a shout of staying in the Premier Division.”
