RAYMOND FOY has spoken about his departure from Finn Harps, which was confirmed this morning by the club.
Midfielder Foy was Harps’ Player of the Year last season when they won promotion to the Premier Division.
Having played 27 games last season, Foy has started only four League games this season and has been restricted to a bit-part role, something that left the Castlefin man frustrated in recent weeks.
Foy has quelled notions of unrest at Finn Park.
“I don’t think there is anything wrong at all and I say that from the bottom of my heart,” he told Donegal Sport Hub.[adrotate group=”50″]
“The work that is going on is actually very, very good. I think the lads will stay up. The last few weeks haven’t gone the way we wanted to. When you can’t affect the results on the pitch it becomes really frustrating.”
Foy played the last 28 minutes of last week’s 5-0 defeat to Derry City and appearances off the bench had become the norm for the player.
He said: “I thought about it for a couple of weeks before I spoke to Ollie. At my age I have to be playing regularly. I’ve been fit now for a few months and haven’t featured so it was a decision I had to make for my own future.[adrotate group=”38″]
“I spoke to Ollie and said that I needed to play. I was going to expect him to tell me that I’d play every week. I thought I was putting in the work and was playing well in the bits and pieces that I was getting.
“It was a really, really tough decision. There’d been a few sleepless nights thinking about it.”[adrotate group=”46″]
