Quigley and O'Connor rejoin Rovers

 

PFAI player of the year Mark Quigley and fellow nominee Seán O’Connor have rejoined Shamrock Rovers.

New Rovers boss Trevor Croly unveiled the signings yesterday, describing them as the “type of players that excite fans”. “We have added more quality to the squad with these signings,” he said. “Both players were nominated for the PFAI player of the year by their fellow players, which says a lot about the seasons they had last year.

“They are both excellent players; I have worked with them before and they have a lot of ability and are the type of players that excite fans.”

Striker Quigley (27), who played with Rovers in 2005, move back from Sligo Rovers after memorable season with the league winners, in which he scored 10 goals in 20 starts.

“It’s unbelievable to be back at Shamrock Rovers. I started my career in the league here,” he said. “This is a massive club and I’ve come here to win the league with Rovers. I think all the players that are here will be very hungry for success next season and that’s the way I’m feeling too.

Winger O’Connor (29) is also returning to Rovers after a spell between 2008 and 2010, having enjoyed an impressive season with St Patrick’s Athletic.

“I’m delighted to have signed,” he said.
