Caolan McAleer has become the latest player to leave Finn Harps.
The 24-year-old Omagh native has signed for Sligo Rovers – and says he wants to get the Bit O’Red back into the top positions in the League.
Rovers survived relegation in 2017, with Harps making the drop along with Drogheda and Galway.
“I’m delighted to be here,” McAleer, who will be a part of a full-time set-up in Sligo, said.
“When the approach was made by Sligo Rovers, I was really happy because it has everything that I want. Now I’m here I want to kick on and make my mark here.
“The main thing for me was playing games last season, I played nearly 30 in the league. I had a good season. I wanted to get more goals but I chipped in towards the end and I got assists. That’s my game – contributing to goals – so overall I was pleased.
“Since I’ve come here, I’ve had a look around and you can just see everything is in place to do well. It’s a good atmosphere around the place as well.
“I want to be a player to get the club up the table. I’m not here to make up numbers. I’m here to play and help the team out. I want Sligo Rovers to get back on track to where it should be. That’s the top half of the table.
“There are players here and changes happening that can push Sligo Rovers on to the top half of the table and I’m thrilled to be part of that.”Tags:
