Rovers to face Galway and former keeper Nugent in friendly

Sligo Rovers have confirmed another pre-season friendly.

The Bit O’ Red will be away to Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday, January 27.

Dave Robertson’s side are likely to come up against a familiar face that day, as Shane Keegan’s Galway yesterday confirmed the signing of former Rovers keeper Ciaran Nugent for the season ahead.

The American departed the Showgrounds at the end of last season, having claimed six clean sheets in the final seven games of the year.
