Sligo Rovers have announced that they have parted company with manger Dave Robertson.

The Bit O’ Red  have struggled this season and are second from bottom in the Airtricity League Premier Division after amassing just five points from their first seven games.

“Following a review of the season to date Sligo Rovers and their manager Dave Robertson have mutually agreed to part on an amicable basis,” a statement from Sligo Rovers said.

Chairman Martin Heraghty thanked Dave Robertson for his contribution and total professionalism with the club over the past eighteen months.

“Everyone at Sligo Rovers would like to thank Dave for all of his hard work, dedication and commitment during his time as our manager,” he said.

“He took over after a difficult season in 2015 and led us to a very creditable fifth place finish last year.

“I know that Dave has taken Sligo Rovers to his heart and will continue to be very supportive of club, staff and players moving forward.

“We wish Dave the very best of success in his future managerial career”.

Declan McIntyre will become interim boss and his first game will be against Bohemians at the Showgrounds on Saturday.
