Club statement: Micky Adams
Sligo Rovers can confirm that Micky Adams will not be extending his stay with the club after opting to return to England for family reasons.
Adams led Rovers to Premier Division safety after overseeing a run of 15 points from 11 games in charge.
He said: “I have really enjoyed my time with Sligo Rovers. I was given a task of keeping the club in the Premier Division and I’m delighted we achieved that. I hope I brought a professional approach to the club from the time here.
“I have had to make a very difficult decision that for family reasons I will return to England. It is never an easy decision to put yourself out of work but I have to put my family first.
“I want to thank the people of Sligo and the committee for the wonderful welcome we received during our time here.
“I also want to express my gratitude to the players for their hard work and the staff as well. I wish everyone at Sligo Rovers the very best for the future.”
A statement from the Sligo Rovers management committee read: “The club wish to thank Micky and Alan for the tremendous job they did in their time at The Showgrounds.
