Rovers report €93K loss in 2017

Sligo Rovers reported a loss of €93,000 on a turnover of over €1 million for 2017 at last night’s AGM.

In his report, treasurer David Rowe cited the poor start to the season by the first team and low gates, as well as the need for squad investment in mid-season and the massive gap in home fixtures during the summer as contributing factors.

Meanwhile, six new members were voted on to the management committee – Marie Casserly, Breffni Earley, Anthony Quinn, Mark Cummins, Michael Mooney and Michael Clancy.

And first team manager Gerard Lyttle confirmed that Kyle Callan-McFadden will be the club captain for 2018, with Rhys McCabe named vice-captain.

Rovers host Limerick in their first game of the new season on Saturday.
