Sligo Rovers have today announced the signing of striker Benny Igiehon. Igiehon moves to Rovers after spells in both England and Switzerland. The move is subject to International Clearance.
Igiehon comes from Scarborough Athletic where he was the clubs leading goal scorer last season.
After finishing last season as the top scorer for the club, Benny became a real fans favourite and will be missed as he furthers his ambition in full-time football.
Scarborough Athletic played in the 7th tier of English Football last season, finishing in 3rd place in the Northern Premier League.
The 23 year old has been training with the Sligo Rovers first team all week and is very excited about his move to the Showgrounds.
Igiehon told sligorovers.com “This is a fantastic football club with a lot of history and I am honoured to have signed for the club. I cannot wait to help the team move up the league table, which is where the club belongs.”
Manager Gerard Lyttle is delighted to have secured the signing of Igiehon and added “Benny is a real physical presence and has a quick turn of pace. He is a player who has the potential to go on and do great things for Sligo Rovers. I am very pleased to have secured his signature and I am very excited for the supporters of this football club.”
Both Benny Igiehon and fellow new signing Rhys Mc Cabe will be officially unveiled at a press conference in the Showgrounds on Monday June 19th at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
