Fiona Doherty re-signs for Women’s squad

Sligo Rovers are delighted to announce the re-signing of winger Fiona Doherty until the end of the 2023 SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division.

Doherty has had spells with Ballyvary Blue Bombers and Conn Rangers as well as having played GAA in Mayo before signing for the Bit O’ Red before last season’s first ever Women’s Premier Division season.

Manager Steve Feeney is thrilled to sign Doherty today:

‘’This gives us another boost going into the start of the season next week.

‘’Fiona was a real positive for us last season once she signed.

‘’She put in some brilliant displays for us in a couple of different positions and she is a great asset for us for the season ahead’’.

Doherty will be part of the squad in our final pre-season friendly this Saturday at The Showground when we host DLR Waves at 3pm.

Admission is €5 for all categories bar Under 12’s who are free but must be accompanied by an Adult.

The Mayo Woman is happy to be back at The Showgrounds this season:

‘’I’m delighted to re-sign for Sligo Rovers for the 2023 season.

‘’I feel last year was a huge learning curve for me personally transitioning from Gaelic to Football but also as a team.

‘’Last year was a year full of new experiences for a lot of our squad with a lot of us never having played at that level before. 

‘’I’m excited for the year ahead as I feel our squad has got stronger as a unit with the addition of a few superb footballers. 

‘’I look forward to another year of learning from Steve and the backroom team, they were phenomenal last-year and I really hope we can get a few more results to show the work they put in off the pitch and hopefully get a few steps closer to the top of the table’’.
