Nathan Boyle re-signs for Derry City ahead of 2016 season


STRIKER NATHAN BOYLE, who spent the second half of the 2015 season on-loan at Finn Harps, has re-signed for Derry City.

Boyle scored five goals after being taken on-loan by Ollie Horgan, the Harps manager.

He made his debut as a late substitute in the 1-0 home win over Cabinteely in early July.

He marked his first start, away to Waterford United, by netting two goals in a 3-0 victory.

The 21-year-old suffered hamstring trouble late in the season, but scored one of the goals in the 2-1 win over UCD in the First Division play-off second leg.
