Lee J Lynch set for another stint with Sligo Rovers

Lee J Lynch set for another stint with Sligo.

Limerick man Lynch, 26, joins Rovers for a second spell having been with the club in 2012 and 2013. He will remain with the club until the end of the season.

The midfielder departed Limerick FC for U.S side FC Arizona before the start of the current season.

Lynch told the club’s official website: “I was in America and the league had problems where this season wasn’t going to take place. My agent put me in touch with clubs and there was interest from League of Ireland and one from Europe.

“But I spoke with Gerard and he told me about his plans here. My family and I have always loved Sligo. I had two and a half years and knew it would be easy to settle here. I know some of the players here, the club’s huge fan base and the talent here.

“I have amazing memories. Obviously the great times aren’t here right now, but everyone in Ireland knows the size of Sligo Rovers and especially when you’ve been here. There are a lot of talented players here and I think the rub of the green hasn’t come the club’s way. I think over the next 12 league games and two cup competitions that we can make progress.

“I’m 26 now. When I signed here I was 19. I have a good bit more experience and come here as a different player in that sense. But my game is the same. I’ve stayed fit in America. I think I’ll be ready to be in a squad on Friday against Bohemians.

“Match fitness is an issue but that will come. I want to come in and help this team, Sligo Rovers and then we can see where it can take us in the future. I’d be happy to talk about a longer spell here if things work out for all of us.”

Sligo manager Gerard Lyttle said: “Lee has been on our radar for almost a year but it didn’t suit all parties at the right time. We’ve now been able to get it done. Experience is a big part of it. He knows the club, the league and I think he’ll compliment how we play.

“He can play in front of the two in midfield or inside right or left. He has the desire to do well and a lot of quality. It’s great news for us today and we’ll try to get up him to speed as quickly as possible.
