Rovers sign Bermuda international Dante Leverock

Sligo Rovers have announced the signing of Bermuda captain Dante Leverock from Estonian outfit Narva Trans.

The centre half, who spent a lot of his childhood in England, had an impressive season in the Estonian league, including scoring eight goals from the back.

He has 15 caps and two goals with Bermuda and was recently appointed captain when quickly emerging as a leader for the side who are pushing for Gold Cup qualification.

He started his career in English non-league before joining Harrisburg City Islanders in America and returned to play for Ilkeston under Shaun Goater.

Leverock was a stand out player for Narva Trans as they finished fourth in the top flight in Estonia.

Rovers manager Liam Buckley has also confirmed that John Russell and Dave Campbell will be part of his management team. Russell is also registering as a player for the season ahead.
