Kelly puts pen to paper on a one year deal

Sligo Rovers FAI Cup final hero, Ciaran Kelly has today signed a new one year deal which adds to the growing list of players to have pledged there allegiance to the club for the upcoming season.

Kelly, who only last month saved four out of four penalty's against Shamrock Rovers in the FAI Cup Final showed throughout the rest of the season that he is a very steady keeper when called upon and can produce moments of magic (a magnificent save against St. Pats in the second half of their last league game of the season which helped Rovers qualify for Europe and the four penalty saves only to name a couple).

Rovers players under contract for next season:
Ciaran Kelly
Joseph Ndo
Derek Foran
Danny Ventre
Mathew Blinkhorn
Gavin Peers
John Dillion
Alan Keane
Eoin Doyle.

Rovers squad starting to come together

Sligo Rovers have today announced the signing of Joseeph Ndo on a one year contract that will keep him at the club for the 2011 season.
With this signing added to Derek Foran, Danny Ventre, Mathew Blinkhorn, Gavin Peers, John Dillion, Allan Keane and Eoin Doyle already being signed up for next season it seams Rovers are retaining the spine to the team.
Sligo Rovers have also been in talks with Richie Ryan but things don't seem so good on that front with the player saying if Rovers do not improve the contract he will have to look for football abroad.
In an interview with the evening herald the player said
"I'd like to think that I had a good season for Sligo this year and I'd like to see that rewarded in a new contract, but unless they can come up with a better offer I don't know if I will be able to re-sign.
"I am not being greedy or looking for crazy money off the club.
"I know the financial situation in the league and in the country in general so I don't think I am out of order in what I am looking for.
"I will have a think over the weekend and go back to the club early next week, we're still talking to each other, I would like to stay as I have enjoyed it at Sligo, but all I want is to be rewarded."

Other rumours coming out of the club is that they are interested in signing Conor Powel and if this true it would be a great boost for the Rovers defence.
