Keohane excited about move

 

Jimmy Keohane says he is very excited to be returning home and to get started with the new season at Sligo Rovers.

The former Wexford Youths and Ireland under-19 international spent his years in England with Bristol City, Exeter City and Woking.

“I really enjoyed my time playing in England. I was there since 2010 with Bristol and Exeter and it was really good. I enjoyed having full-time football over there. I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and getting the new season started.”

“As a player I like to get forward from midfield. I will try to get into attacking positions and create and score goals.”

Keohane says he enjoyed his previous spell in the league before: “I had a few seasons here before and definitely enjoyed it. It was where I first played and it was a good place to start. I have very good memories from my time with Wexford. I am looking forward to getting started here, it will be a good challenge for me.

“I have been really impressed from meeting Dave. He has a very good pedigree and did well with Peterborough United and he will bring the experience of that here. Sligo Rovers have done very well over the last few years. I definitely think that he can do well and bring success.”
