FINN HARPS FANS are bound to be glued to RTÉ’s Soccer Republic tonight.
BJ Banda’s 117th minute winning goal sealed a 2-0 win over Limerick FC on Friday night, which brought a 2-1 aggregate win in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division promotion-relegation play-off.
It means top flight football for the Ballybofey club next season.
“It was a dream moment for 17-year-old BJ Banda (pictured above by Gary Foy, newsandsportfiles) when his goal put Finn Harps into the Premier League,” says the Soccer Republic teaser on Facebook. “This and much more in a packed show tonight (11pm, RTE2) that also includes Team of the Year and Cup final highlights!”
