Lauren Boles remains at Bit O’ Red Women for 2023

We are thrilled to announce that Lauren Boles has agreed an extension at the club to remain at The Bit O’ Red until at least the end of the 2023 Womens National League season.

Boles was an ever-present in 2022 and finished the season voted as our Senior Womens Player of The Year, decided by the fans.

Lauren is from Sligo and had an impressive youth career locally before playing GAA for Sligo Ladies up until 2022, when she joined Steve Feeney’s squad.

Boles has become a role model to her fellow team-mates and to players in the Academy as a player to look up to and emulate. She played in every minute of every game which is a credit to her dedication and fitness levels.

Manager Steve Feeney is thrilled to have Boles on board once again:

‘’Lauren was a brilliant signing for us back in January.

‘’She was one of the first players I wanted to sign when I got the job and when she agreed to join us, me and the rest of the staff were delighted as we knew what qualities she would bring.

‘’She has been brilliant both on and off the pitch for us and showed that by playing every minute in the season.

‘’We’re excited to work with her again next season’’.

Lauren becomes the first player confirmed for 2023 with a host of re-signings to come over the next few days.

Women’s football is growing both nationally and internationally and we are excited to be part of it at The Showgrounds.

Kick off times in 2023 are expected to change to 5pm on Saturday afternoons and stand alone Womens National League season tickets will be introduced for just €50.

Boles is excited to be part of the squad for next season:

‘’I am delighted to re-sign for Sligo Rovers.

‘’Our first season showed that we are able to compete at Women’s National League level.

‘’I believe this experience will stand to us and with the young talent coming through, the future is bright at Sligo Rovers.

‘’The club and management have done a brilliant job in getting this team established and we will be looking to push on next season’’.

The Womens Senior team will return to pre-season training in January ahead of the new 2023 season which is expected to start at the end of February.
