Thanks from Robbo

 
At the end of the 2016 season for us all here at the Sligo Rovers family, which has seen us consolidate our fifth position in the League of Ireland Premier Division and really start to prepare for a positive 2017 campaign, where we will be aiming to build on the foundations that have been laid this season and progress the club forwards. 
 
I would like to thank all the supporters who have been out to the Showgrounds this season and who have played a huge part in getting this place rocking on a Saturday night. Our home form is something that is important to myself and our players as we feel it is key to show you how much this football club means to us also and has built a great rapport between the players and the supporters. In addition I would like to thank the fantastic away support we have had this season, those of you who travel away to support the team have really got behind us in key games for the squad throughout. 
 
As we now turn our heads towards next season, I feel that have to mention our playing squad who were assembled in a short period of time and have become very close as a group and provided the club with stability to now build on. With most of them committed to the club for 2017 I am really looking forward to working with them and hitting the ground running next season.
 
Finally I would like to congratulate and sincerely thank our management staff, the committee and all the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make this great football club work, It has been a real team effort from everyone pulling together which is appreciated and greatly valued by myself.
 
Looking forward to seeing you all back the Showgrounds in for the 2017 season.
 
Yours in football,
 
Dave Robertson.
