Gibson transfers to Carlisle

Sligo Rovers can confirm Jordan Gibson has joined EFL side Carlisle United for an undisclosed fee. 

Gibson joined Rovers for the 2021 season from Patrick’s Athletic and played 25 games in all competitions, scoring seven goals.

Sligo Rovers manager Liam Buckley said: “Jordan has made a good contribution since coming to the club. 

“At the end of last season with St Pat’s, he wanted to return to England and we did convince him to stay in the league and move here with us.

“As we look back, that was a good move for both Jordan and Sligo Rovers. 

“We did say at the time we would help him to get that move home if something arose and a suitable offer came in. 

“Jordan has that desire to go back to England and from our point of view the deal with Carlisle was a good one for all parties. 

“We’re preparing for a real fight over the next three months to finish the season as well we can and push on. It’s going to be a battle over the coming games and it’s important that it is our total focus without any distractions. 

“We have added to the squad with four players in the window and I do feel we are quite strong for the remainder of the season. 

“We wish Jordan well back in the Football League and thank him for his contribution at the club.”
