WITH THE new League of Ireland season now only a matter of weeks away, Finn Harps supporters are gearing up for a return to the Premier Division.
Harps’ first game back in the top flight will be a mouth-watering North-West derby against Derry City on Friday, March 4 at Finn Park.
Harps fans have waited since 2008, when they were relegated back to the First Division, to taste the big time – and the blue and white army want to mark it in style.
