Micky Adams has opted against continuing as manager of Sligo Rovers having successfully achieved the objective of maintaining their League of Ireland Premier League status.

Adams joined the club in August 2015, leading Rovers to safety by securing 15 points from the last 11 games.

On his departure he said: “I have really enjoyed my time with Sligo Rovers. I was given a task of keeping the club in the Premier Division and I’m delighted we achieved that. I hope I brought a professional approach to the club from the time here.

“I have had to make a very difficult decision that for family reasons I will return to England. It is never an easy decision to put yourself out of work but I have to put my family first.

“I want to thank the people of Sligo and the committee for the wonderful welcome we received during our time here. 

“I also want to express my gratitude to the players for their hard work and the staff as well. I wish everyone at Sligo Rovers the very best for the future.”

A statement from the Sligo Rovers management committee read: “The club wish to thank Micky and Alan for the tremendous job they did in their time at The Showgrounds.

“The professionalism and dedication Micky brought to the job lifted the club and guided the club away from a perilous position and for that we are very grateful.

“We wish them every success going forward.”
