Orna O’ Dowd re-signs for Women’s Senior squad

Sligo Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of defender Orna O’ Dowd until at least the end of the 2023 SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division season.

O’ Dowd was a regular starter in the Bit O’ Red team last season and re-signs for the club today as we approach the new season.

The experienced defender played previously with Ballina Town and Conn Rangers in the Mayo league.

Rovers Manager Steve Feeney is thrilled with the latest re-signing:

‘’Orna was brilliant for us last season.

‘’Her leadership qualities on the pitch and defensive ability really stood out and we are delighted we have her available again this season.

‘’She will be a big asset for us moving into the 2023 season and we’re looking forward to working with her again’’.

O’ Dowd and her Bit O’ Red team mates continue pre-season training this evening at The Showgrounds and play Athlone Town in their second pre-season friendly at Athlone Town stadium this Saturday at 2pm.

The Sligo woman is happy to be back at The Showgrounds:

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

‘’We set the foundation last year but, now we need to build on last season’s results, compete even stronger in the League this year, starting with the first round when we host Shamrock Rovers at home in The Showgrounds“.
