    Danny Morrissey and Ethan Boyle both on full time contracts at Harps. Ollie Horgan hopes to add "at least two more" full time players.

    They will train with the squad three times a week and do their own gym work in between.
    Absolutely not a pop at Harps, as most clubs struggle with this stuff, but that is a very strange definition of "full time". In practice, doesn't that basically mean they do exactly the same as other players, but get paid a bit more so they don't need another job? Wouldn't that just pi55 off other teammates?

    Ollie using some of the money he gets for motivational speaking I'd imagine.

    Nowhere. Extra money isn't there. It's a massive gamble from the club to increase any budget. From the best of my understanding though, it's not being increased by an awful lot at all.

    Well, a lot of the players actually prefer to keep their day jobs. Some of them are in very good jobs too.

    Those on full-time contracts won't be getting a huge amount extra anyway, simply because we cannot afford big wages. They'll obviously be given set gym times and work to do as well. Not exactly up to their own discretion whether they go or what they do. Harps fitness coach Michael Black has his own gym, Optimal Fitness in Letterkenny, so presumably he'll be keeping an eye on them.

    It also means that we won't be going into midweek games potentially missing certain key players due to work commitments like we did last year.

    Bray appear to be putting a decent enough squad together for 2017, and by all accounts they are not finished yet in the market. They might have a good chance of really pushing on next season.

    It will be interesting to see if they can hold on to Connolly, suppose it will depend on the price, but no way will Dundalk be forking out the mad figures mentioned last week. The fee Dlk have agreed with Pats for Sean Hoare is 12-15k, very reasonable but he was not under contract.

    I was surprised to see Rovers let go of Rob Cornwall - he signed for Bohs last week. Whenever I saw Cornwall I always thought he was their best CB after Webster.

    Any idea why he was let go, Rovers fans? Did i just happen to see him when he had a rare good game?

    He was very poor at Rovers. Their defence was over the place with Cornwall in the team.

    Don't think he was "very poor" but if we are going to try to close the gap on Cork and Dundalk we have to improve the defence and at best he was only "ok".

    Why are there separate pages for "Transfers 2016" and "Transfers 2017"?
