Max Mata extends his Rovers’ contract

Sligo Rovers are delighted to confirm that Max Mata has signed a contract extension with the club to keep him at The Showgrounds until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Mata joined the club in February after spells in Estonia and America and has scored five goals so far this season.

The 22-year-old puts pen to paper today on a new contract having settled well into The North-West:

‘’I am happy to have extended my contract here at Sligo Rovers.

”I’m excited to be working with good people and I am excited for what the future holds.

”I can’t wait to continue my development here.’’

Mata has been capped at International level with New Zealand and has proved to be a handful for defenders both domestically and in Europe so far this season.

Manager John Russell spoke about his delight at securing Mata’s signature:

‘’I’m delighted to have secured Max on a deal until the end of the 2024 season. Max has all the attributes of a top centre forward.

”He is strong, quick, can link the play and is a real threat in the box.

”He has already shown his ability to score goals as well as a desire to work hard for the team.

”I think the fans will be excited by this news.”

Mata will be part of the Bit O’ Red squad in this Thursday’s Europa Conference League Second-Leg tie with Motherwell.
