Crossan was a goalscorer in the 2-0 friendly win on Tuesday night against Trojans in Derry and netted twice in a 4-4 draw with Kilmacrennan Celtic last week in the Joseph Sheridan Memorial Cup. Fanad won the shoot-out 5-4.
The Killea native, 29, was part of Harps’ promotion winning squad last season, when Ollie Horgan’s side beat Limerick FC 2-1 on aggregate in the play-off but parted company with the Ballybofey side in July.[adrotate group=”38″]
Crossan has also had spells at Derry City, Kildrum Tigers, Limavady and Coleraine.
