Will Fitzgerald signs new Bit O’ Red contract

Sligo Rovers are thrilled to announce that midfielder Will Fitzgerald has agreed a contract extension to remain at the club until at least the end of the 2023 season.

Fitzgerald arrived at The Showgrounds from Derry City ahead of the 2022 season and made 42 appearances out of a total 43 games in his debut season.

The winger had many impressive performances, predominantly from the left-hand side of midfield and Bit O’ Red Manager John Russell is delighted with the latest signing:

‘’I’m delighted Will has signed a new deal with the club.

‘’Will is a real attacking threat and he showed his quality all last season.

‘’He was excellent during our European run and I know he has the hunger to keep improving and become an even better player.

‘’There was a lot of interest in Will so, we’re delighted he sees his future at Sligo Rovers. I feel next season will be a big year for him, myself and all the staff are looking forward to working with him again’’.

The Limerick born Fitzgerald has had spells with Limerick FC, Waterford and Derry City and has now agreed to stay for a second year at The Showgrounds having enjoyed his first season here in front of the Sligo Rovers supporters:


‘’I am delighted to extend my stay with Sligo Rovers today.

‘’It is a great club with even greater people involved behind the scenes.

The vision John Russell has set out for the club is exciting for any player to be a part of.

It was an easy decision to commit for next season and I am looking forward to getting back out there in front of the fans’’.

Will once again takes the number 7 shirt next season and will return to pre-season training with his team-mates in early January to begin an intensive seven-week training regime ahead of the new League of Ireland Premier Division season in mid-February.

Fitzgerald becomes signing number nineteen for John Russell with more signings expected between now and Christmas to continue to bolster his Rovers’ squad.
