Delvin youngster Finn signs for Longford Town

A young footballer from Delvin has put pen to paper to sign with League of Ireland outfit Longford Town.

Finn Higgins is the latest recruit from north Westmeath side Inny FC at Bishopsgate.

“Finn is a quiet lad, who lets his performances on the pitch do the talking,” Inny FC said in a social media statement yesterday, adding that he continually raised and set standards over the past couple of seasons.

“He leaves us now as just another example of a player’s progression, who started out their footballing baptism and pathway through our successful Inny Saturday morning academy, which is a testament in itself for a ‘little’ club.”

Finn becomes the eighth Inny FC underage academy player to sign for a League of Ireland club over the last three seasons.
