Ellis Chapman joins Rovers on loan

The club are pleased to announce the signing of Ellis Chapman from Cheltenham Town FC. The 22 year old midfielder will join the club on loan until the end of June.

John Russell:

“Yeah, I’m really happy to get a player like Ellis into the club. He’s a box to box midfielder with a really good passing range. For such a young player he has a really good pedigree of experience, he’s only 22 but he has played a lot of games at a high level.

“He was with Cheltenham when they won League Two, and played a lot of games with them in League One as well. In conversations with him I know he is excited to come over big impact on the team, and I’m delighted to get him on board”

Ellis Chapman:

“I knew about the club and the ambition the club had from obviously Reece Hutchinson who I’m very close with. Then meeting up with the manager confirmed everything for me, talking about the way his team plays and the ambitions he has with the team.

“Coming to Sligo will be a new, fresh start for me which is something I’ve been looking for, I would like to get a run of games and show the fans and the club what I can do. I’m really looking forward to the challenge and with no hesitation I will give my all for the club. I cannot wait to get started and with hard work hopefully getting the club back competing towards the top end of the division”

The club would like to thank all supporters who have purchased their Season Tickets for 2024, and expect to announce more squad news in the coming weeks.
