Baraclough signs new contract

Sligo Rovers are delighted to confirm that manager Ian Baraclough has signed a contract extension with the club. 
 
The new agreement runs until the end of the 2014 season.
 
The Rovers boss has guided the Bit o’ Red to the 2012 Airtricity League title and the 2013 FAI Ford Cup since joining the club 18 months ago. 
 
He has been in charge of Rovers for 87 games, winning a total of 50 of those with 21 draws and 16 losses. 
 
The 42-year-old presided over the club’s longest ever unbeaten run in all competitions of 13 games in early 2012 and in league games alone of 16 during the 2012 season. 
 
He also overseen the club’s best ever start to a season with 10 wins at the start of 2013.
 
Baraclough said: “It is fantastic to sign a new deal. From the outset I stated my intention was to stay with the club and build on what we have already achieved so far. 
 
“There is a burning desire to win more trophies, more titles, make that breakthrough in Europe and improve the structures of the club.
 
“We already have some great memories but I want to build a legacy here. The preparations for next season started several weeks ago and we’re making good progress. Winning the FAI Cup capped last season in style but we will strive to bring more honours to the club.”
 
Chairman Tony Quinn added: “We are extremely pleased to extend Ian’s contract with Sligo Rovers. 
 
“He has excelled in the challenges set when he joined the club, becoming the first Rovers manager to win a Premier Division and a FAI Cup in our history in doing so. 
 
“His professionalism and pride in what has been achieved so far is a prime example of an even greater hunger to bring more trophies and great occasions to The Showgrounds.
 
“The victory in the Aviva Stadium is fresh in our memory but as a management committee we are working tirelessly to ensure 2014 will be another memorable season.”
