Francis Harrington was De Courcey Albions main striker for most of the 90’s and early 00’s. Usually averaging 20 goals a season, a knee injury prevented him from signing back up in 2007 when the club reformed. He became legendary at the club not for his tap ins from 2 yards but more so from his wonder goals, speed & dribbling ability. Francis now spends his spare time scoring penalties against his brother Padraig who still hasn’t let go of his penalty save in the cup in 1999.
