Sligo make double signing

Updated: July 3, 2012

Sligo Rovers can announce the signings of Seamus Conneely and Jeff Henderson from Sheffield United and Newcastle until the end of the 2013 Airtricity Premier Division season.

The duo make the move to Rovers to take Ian Baraclough’s transfer window signings to three following Ryan Connolly’s switch to the Bit o’Red.

Conneely joins after leaving Sheffield United where he spent 18 months at the English League 1 club.

The right-back, who turns 24 next week, has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-21 and Under-23 level.

Henderson signs for Rovers from Newcastle United where he spent seven years in their youth set-up and as captain of their reserve team.

The 20-year-old featured in the Newcastle first team squad and also had a spell on loan at Gateshead.
