Club statement

Sligo Rovers can confirm the club has parted company with manager Ian Baraclough and assistant Gary Stevens.

Baraclough led Rovers to three trophies in just under two and a half years at The Showgrounds, becoming one of the most successful managers in the club’s history with a Premier Division title in 2012, a FAI Cup in 2013 and a Setanta Sports Cup last May.

The club wish to express our gratitude to Ian for his enormous contribution at Sligo Rovers since joining in February 2012.

In winning a first league title in 35 years, securing a fifth FAI Cup and a first ever All-Ireland crown, Ian’s partnership with the club has been a memorable period for the Bit o’ Red, one that will forever be part of a glorious era in our history.

We also thank Gary Stevens for the imprint he leaves on the club in both coaching of the team and his work in the community behind the scenes. 

We wish them both every success in the future.
