Derry City are delighted to confirm that midfielder Harry Monaghan has rejoined the club.

The 23-year-old will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2017 season.

“In every aspect, we want to go one better, we had two ‘semis’, so why not go for the finals next year,” he said

“Last year the pre-season was brilliant  and I’m looking forward to getting going again.”

Manager Kenny Shiels is happy that the Glaswegian has re-signed for the club.

“Harry’s season was interrupted with injury, but we could see the potential he brings to the team and it’s good to get him back on, it’s like a new signing,” said the City gaffer.

“We are trying to grow our squad, we had 14/15 players at training on Monday and 10 of those were in their early 20’s, which is good and it lends itself to a good future.

“We want to make sure that we don’t neglect the players that we have by bringing in players from outside.”
