FINN HARPS AND Derry City have both made signings today ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.

Harps have announced the addition of 21-year-old goalkeeper Peter Burke, who joins Ollie Horgan’s side following the departure of Harry Doherty earlier this week.

Burke, a Donegal native, spent the last two seasons with Cliftonville, having been released by Sunderland in 2015. He has also represented the Republic of Ireland at U17 and U19 level.

Meanwhile, Derry City have brought in 19-year-old attacker Mikey Place and 25-year-old Slovakian winger Jozef Dolny.

Place, who hails from Galway, joins the Candystripes after being released by Sligo Rovers. He cut his teeth with the U19 side at the Showgrounds before graduating to the first team last season.

Dolny, a former U19 international with Slovakia, last played for Polish second tier outfit Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala, having previously played in the Slovakian top flight with Senica and Tatran Presov.

Neither Place nor Dolny will be available for tomorrow’s visit of Limerick to Buncrana, but both should be in contention for next Friday’s trip to Shamrock Rovers.
