Goalkeeper Gledhill joins Rovers

Sligo Rovers have completed the signing of goalkeeper Matthew Gledhill until the end of the season.
 
The 19-year-old joins after leaving Stoke City and will provide competition to Gary Rogers and Ciaran Kelly.
 
Glenhill, born in Doncaster and with family based in Cork, left the Premier League club in the summer.
 
Rovers boss Ian Baraclough said: "Matthew had lot of goalkeepers to compete with at Stoke and it is to our benefit now that he makes the move to Sligo. 
 
"He has a bright future, he has worked with some very good goalkeepers and picked up some good habits so we will see where it can go now. We're very pleased to bring him in. 
 
"I think Ciaran Kelly has really pushed Gary Rogers this season and he can count himself somewhat unfortunate at times. He is pushing it all the time and Matthew will add to that now."
