Finn Harps land major coup in Sligo legend Cretaro


Sligo Rovers legend Raffaele Cretaro has signed for Finn Harps, the club has confirmed.

Earlier today, Sligo announced that Cretaro – with 600 appearances in 17 seasons – had left the Showgrounds.

The 37-year-old has been added to Ollie Horgan’s roster at Harps.

Horgan says Cretaro – who won a League and two FAI Cups with Sligo – is a seasoned performer whose experience will be beneficial to the Harps squad in the top flight.

“We’re happy to get Raff in as he is a forward with vast experience of the Premier Division,” Horgan said.

“Competition for places in every part of the field is vital and Raff will give us that up front.

“He’s looking forward to a new challenge at Finn Park and please God his enthusiasm for the game and his knowledge of what it takes to put it up to the top teams will rub off on our younger players who have to learn quickly at this level.”
