Martin: "I'll improve under Dave."


Liam Martin is looking forward to returning to Rovers and in particular the chance to work under Dave Robertson.

Martin has developed as a player during his two years away and comes back looking to improve further.

Martin had a loan spell initially with the Fermanagh club before joining permanently in 2014: “It wasn’t easy to leave Ballinamallard as I had a good couple of season there. Especially last season I think I did well and the start to this year. I think it is the best time to move on now for myself and Ballinamallard. The move is the right one for me.

“I’d like to think that I am coming back to Rovers a better player than when I was last here. I got to play regular football for two full seasons with Ballinamallard and a lot of games. I think that has helped me improve. Now I want to take that experience back to Sligo.”



Martin cited Dave Robertson as a key factor in his decision to sign with his positive philosophy something that Martin feels will bring out the best in him: “I hope to fit in with the style of play that Dave Robertson likes. I spoke to him about the set up he planned to have and I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t feel it suited me. He likes to play with a very attacking, positive style and I think that it should suit my game.

“I definitely feel that I will improve with playing under Dave and that was a big part of my decision to come here. He has a lot of experience from his time with Peterborough United and I am looking forward to working with him. Hopefully he can help me improve and we can both help eachother be successful this year.”
