Raf will be adding to his 360 appearances

SLIGO ROVERS manager Ian Baraclough is continuing his search for new players.

With striker Rafaele Cretaro having signed a new contract with Sligo Rovers, Baraclough is scouting in England for potential additions to his Showgrounds squad for the upcoming season.

The Rovers boss said: "I'm pleased to have Raf over the line and hopefully others will follow.

"Rafael had a good strong end to the season and was worth his weight in gold.

"He is a great lad to have around a club. He looks after himself and doesn't moan if he is not in the team. He just gets on with it."

Cretaro has made 360 appearances for 'The Bit O'Red' - the fourth highest in the history of the club.

He said: "Im delighted to get things sorted and look ahead to the next season.

"It can take time and it is nice to complete the deal."

Baraclough has been an interested spectator at a number of matches in England and at the weekend attended the League Two encounter between Burton and Accrington Stanley.

He ended up sitting beside former Accrington and Rovers manager, Paul Cook, who is now in charge at Chesterfield.

Baraclough said: "It's about looking at guys and seeing who is out there."

"Obviously there are players we would like and I would hope that we could get more done before Christmas."
