Sligo Rovers have completed the signing of goalkeeper Micheal Schlingermann from Drogheda United.
The Mayo native is returning to his first senior club on a full-time basis after impressing for Drogheda in 2015 despite the fact that the Boynesiders suffered automatic relegation.
Schlingermann, who hails from a German family, had mixed his Drogheda commitments with a job with the FAI working on their Summer Soccer Schools programme.
But he was keen to move into football full-time and has become the first signing of new Bit O'Red boss Dave Robertson.
The 24-year-old said: "As soon as Dave rang me I got excited about coming here. It's coming back home and to a big club in Sligo Rovers so it's great. I was here when I was 17 and I made my debut under Paul Cook. It was then that I built a hunger to play football."
