Rovers sign Richards

 

Sligo Rovers can confirm the signing of Jordan Richards on loan from Notts County.

Richards is an 18 year-old who can play in both defence and midfield joins until the end of June.

His father Pedro was also a defender for Notts County playing 399 times for them in the 70s and 80s.

Richards graduated through the ranks at Meadow Lane where he was a captain of their youth team and was given a professional contract last summer.

He joined Boston United for a loan spell in September and impressed there as a regular in the team until the loan ended earlier this month.

He started 19 games there and scored one goal. Richards has been training at The Showgrounds this week.

The signing takes the squad up to 16 players now signed.
