Lewis Banks has become the latest player to re-sign for Sligo Rovers for the 2022 season.

Banks’ new contract will see him line out for the Bit O’Red for a fourth season with the defender making over 70 appearances for Rovers since he joined them ahead of the 2019 Premier Division campaign.

“I’m delighted to sign,” the 24-year-old said, speaking to the club’s website.

“When I first signed here qualifying for Europe was the big aim. We’ve done that twice now and it’s a real achievement to do that.

“I didn’t know what to expect when I left England to come here but next season will be my fourth year and it tells you how much I’ve enjoyed it.

“I’ve good relationships with people at the club and I wouldn’t stay without that. It counts for a lot and I’ve liked playing here for the last three seasons.

“I look back on the year that we finished third and it could have been more with the start we had. I missed pre-season and some of the early games because of an injury.

“It was tough to get back in but I do find with a good run of games you are far better for it. I had that and felt I contributed over the course of the season.”

Banks is the second player to re-sign for Liam Buckley’s side in recent days with the club confirming Adam McDonnell’s contract extension on Wednesday.
