Edward McGinty Returns to Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers are delighted to announce the return of goalkeeper Edward McGinty to the club. The 24-year-old shot-stopper is back at The Showgrounds after a spell with League One side Oxford United. He joins on loan from Oxford United until the end of June.

McGinty, a product of the Sligo Rovers academy, established himself as a key player in the years prior to his departure. His last game for the club was in the penalty shootout win against Bala Town in European competition in 2022. A firm fan favourite he makes his return on the run up to the start of the new season which begins on 17th February.

John Russell: “It’s brilliant to get the deal done. Ed is a massive presence both on and off the pitch. He’s a quality goalkeeper as everyone knows, but he brings a lot more than that to the squad. I know there were a number of club in for him which is understandable given his quality, but he still has that desire to play for this club which is what makes him such a fans favourite”

“I know all our supporters will be looking forward to seeing him back in a Sligo Rovers shirt and we’re delighted to get the deal done.”

Keep an eye on our socials as will have an interview with Ed about his return later on today.

Anticipation for the season ahead is building. The club have today announced that tickets for the first home game of the season v Derry City on Saturday 24th February, will go on sale on 1st February. Demand is expected to be high for our return to the Showgrounds and supporters are encouraged to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
