Sligo Rovers continued their preparations for the 2022 League of Ireland season with the announcement that Adam McDonnell has signed a contract extension with the club.

The former Ipswich Town player signed for the Bit O’Red from Boreham Wood during the summer and he went on to make 16 appearances for Rovers this season.

“When I signed last summer, I had offers elsewhere in Ireland including in Dublin and coming here just felt right. I knew in the first three days that I was going to enjoy it, even by just being in training,” McDonnell said, speaking to the club’s website.

“It’s the happiest I’ve been in years in football. There are quality players here and the decision to come here last summer has been one of the best I’ve ever made.

“We’re in Europe next year with an unbelievable core group of players.

“The gaffer gives us a freedom to play and to express yourself. I’m happy with what we’ve done in finishing third but 100% there’s more to come from me. With a pre-season under my belt I feel you’ll see the best of me.”

Sligo have been one of the busier sides locking down players for next season with Greg Bolger, Garry Buckley, Colm Horan, Johnny Kenny and Robbie McCourt all committing to the club in recent weeks.
