Trevor Gordon has been appointed as Infrastructure Co-ordinator , while Aidan McNelis will be Supporter Liaison Officer.
Gordon will be responsible for all aspects of infrastructure development and will be the contact between the club and the FAI licencing Department on all related issues.
Most Harps supporters will be familiar with Trevor as an avid supporter, former board member and editor of well known Harps fanzine “Down By The River”
He has a Degree in Engineering from University of Ulster in 1997 and is a Chartered Engineer with the Institute of Engineers of Ireland and over 18 years experience in engineering and construction, most of that time
with the Roads Department of Donegal County Council, and is currently employed in the National Roads Authority’s Regional Design Office in Donegal Town.
“When I was on the board of the club I oversaw some of the previous upgrades to Finn Park when FAI Licensing was first introduced, concreting the terraces etc to get up to minimum requirements at that time,” Gordon said.
“I was involved in the earlier days of the ground development committee, I actually prepared the planning permission drawings for the new stadium.
“With a lot of work to be done to get a Premier license I felt with my qualifications and past experience I should offer to help in some way, so I’m glad to liaise with the FAI regarding the infrastructure and hopefully help make sure we get the license we need.”
Finn Harps Chairman Sean Quinn added: “We have all worked with Trevor before he will be another big asset to the club. Trevor will liaise with the board and our licensing officer Christian Carbin and will become our key contact on issues regarding Finn Park and infrastructure with the FAI licensing department.
“We will keep looking for new people to become involved so we can continue to grow the club, and we hope to make further announcements in the near future.”
Meanwhile, having an Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO) is a licensing requirement and the role represents a bridge between the board of the club and fans.
