Kerri O’ Hara signs for 2023

Sligo Rovers are delighted to announce that youngster Kerri O’ Hara has once again signed for the club ahead of the 2023 SSE Airtricity Womens Premier Division season.

Kerri, or Pixie as she is more commonly known was one of the standout performers last season in our first season at Women’s National League level.

The Tubbercurry native who attends St Attracta’s College was given her debut by Steve Feeney early in the season having progressed through our Under 17 and 19 Womens teams.

O’ Hara played in a number of positions throughout the season and was rewarded with a number of call-ups to The Republic of Ireland Under 19 Womens squad, most recently for a training camp in Waterford last weekend.

Bit O’ Red boss Steve Feeney is pleased that Pixie is once against on board next season:

‘’I am delighted to see Pixie sign again for next year.

‘’Every time she stepped on the pitch she played without fear and her talent is limitless and we are all very excited to see what her future in the game brings.

‘’She was deservedly called up to the International set up during the year and I am sure this is only just the start of her career’’.

Pixie also plays for her school’s team and was part of the squad that won the Connacht Junior title earlier this year, narrowly missing out on reaching the All-Ireland Schools Final after a close defeat in the Semi-Final.

O’ Hara is another product of Sligo Rovers Academy and played for our Under 17 side before progressing through to our Under 19 team and now becomes a main stay in our Senior squad.

The versatile midfielder is happy to be on board again:

‘’I’m delighted to have resigned for the 2023 season.

‘’Last season, we proved that we’re well able to compete in the Woman’s National League and we only want to push on going into next season’’.

The Bit O’ Red will begin the 2022 season with a home tie against Shamrock Rovers on Saturday March 4th at The Showgrounds.

Season Tickets for the Women’s team will be on sale from January at just €50.
