Will Seymore has swapped one north-west club for another, joining Finn Harps for the 2021 campaign. 

The American midfielder spent last season at Sligo Rovers, helping them earn European qualification with a fourth placed finish in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

Seymore made 15 top flight appearances for Sligo last term, and ended the season with one assist to his name.

His arrival ahead of the new campaign follows those of Conor Barry and Ryan Rainey.

"Ollie Horgan was a big reason that I signed to be honest," Seymore said of his decision to switch clubs.

"Leaving Sligo was disappointing but when Ollie got in touch and we spoke he was very straight with me.

"My conversations with him definitely lit a fire under me to come and prove a point in the league and I can’t wait to get going."

Seymore wants to put what he learned during his first season in the League of Ireland to use in Ballybofey, "Growing up I played a lot of lower league level in England where it's very physical and so coming to Ireland I had some idea on what to expect on the differences compared to in the US.

"I really enjoyed my time last season. There’s a lot of quality in the league and although fans couldn’t attend most of the games you can tell from being in the area how much the club means to them and how important every game is.

"When I left Sligo I knew I wanted to stay in Ireland. I really enjoy being here and I definitely have a bit of a chip on my shoulder now too to show what I can do."

His new manager added, "Will is a good lad and definitely fits a need in the squad.

"He has plenty of experience and is hungry to push on and improve himself now so we’re delighted to have him signed up."
