Former Derry City stalwart Peter Hutton quit as boss of Finn Harps after they got a creditable 3-2 win over Division One champions Athlone at Finn Park on Friday night.

Speculation about his future had been growing in recent days after a string of bad results which has seen the Donegal outfit drop to the bottom three.

Derry City manager Declan Devine said yesterday he was disappointed for Peter, but he predicted a quick return to football for him. “I’ve known Peter a long time. He has fantastic experience and a huge knowledge of the game and he won’t be out of action for too long.”
