Donelon signs new contract

Regan Donelon has signed a new contract with Sligo Rovers to stay with the club for the 2020 season.

The 23-year-old made his debut in 2014 having previously been an academy player.

Liam Buckley: “Regan has done well, we’ve used him in a couple of roles this year.

“We rate him highly and being able to deploy him on the left side of a 4-3-3 midfield has been useful because he has a tremendous passing ability and a brilliant left foot.

“The set-piece ability is a major asset to him game as well so he is a valuable member of the squad.

“There is still more to come from him. For a 23-year-old he knows this league very well and we’re looking for him to have his best year yet next year.

“I think he will play a big part in our season next year and he has his best football ahead of him.

“We will be working off quite tight numbers again in 2020, so every player that we sign is going to be very important for us.”

Regan Donelon: “I’m delighted to be staying here for another season, Liam and John have been great throughout the season.

“Hopefully we can build on this season going forward for 2020.

“We’ve learned a lot as a team and a group all season and we’re all going to work even harder to push on to better things again for next season.

“We can be happy with progress, but this club can do a lot better than that still and that is what we are all thinking going into 2020.”
