Robbie McCourt is the latest player to commit his future to Sligo Rovers.

The defender has signed a two-year contract after a hugely impressive debut season at the Showgrounds.        

The Dubliner played 25 league matches, despite breaking his wrist in the summer time, and has been a very influential player for the Bit O’ Red.

Rovers secured a top three finish in the league with two matches to play and remain in contention for second place.

McCourt emerged as first-choice left-back this year following pre-season.

The three and-a-half months McCourt spent on the sidelines coincided with the most difficult part of the year for the Bit O’ Red, including exiting the Europa Conference League.

McCourt left his former club Bohemians after helping them qualify for Europe in 2019, while in Waterford it was Rovers who pipped them on the final day, meaning he missed out for 2021.

He was set to play after moving to Sligo but the injury scuppered hopes of a European bow last July.
