Robertson: "Tim is an excellent pro."

 

Dave Robertson was pleased to add some experience to his squad with the signing of Tim Clancy.

The 31 year-old becomes the seventh player to commit to his squad for the new season with more set to follow in the coming weeks.

“Tim will bring plenty of experience to our squad. He comes with a good pedigree both from his time in Sligo and with Millwall and in Scotland. He will be an excellent pro.

“He brings valuable experience to a young defence with Gary Boylan and Regan Donelon. Tim is a very good leader and can be a good talker for us at the back.”

Along with Donelon and Boylan Robertson also added keeper Micheal Schlingermann to his squad giving a solid look to the defence already: “We are building from the back with the squad and that is how we hope to play as well. There is also plenty of targets lined up in attacking areas. I am happy with how that part of the team is coming together.

“Hopefully we will have a couple more in the next few days. It is important to have strength in defence and to have a solid structure in place. Once we have that it gives us the freedom to go forward from there.

“We should have the majority of our squad together for the start of pre-season training two weeks from today. There is a few more deals almost done and in progress we are just getting all the paperwork together. It shouldn’t take too long to have a few more signings made.”
