Rogers extends Dundalk stay

Veteran goalkeeper Gary Rogers has signed a new contract at champions-elect Dundalk that will keep him at the club until the end of next season.

Rogers, who has kept 28 clean sheets this season as the Lilywhites eased to another league title, has made 203 appearances for the club since signing from Sligo Rovers at the start of the 2015 campaign.

Since then the 38-year-old has helped them to four league titles, two FAI Cups and two EA Sports Cups and is a key figure at the club.

“It’s great to be staying,” he told the club’s official website. “I am delighted to extend my contract. It’s good to know that going forward I will be here again next year.

“We have had a good season so far and we want to finish it strongly.

“There’s still a lot to play for with the FAI Cup final in a couple of weeks and then we have the Champions Cup against Linfield. We are aiming for more of the same.

“I am enjoying my football at Dundalk. When you get to the tail end of your career there’s always that desire to get as much as you can out of it.

“The training and the culture which exists at the club is what has helped me have such a great time the last few years, if I am not in the best condition possible I won’t play.

“That’s the standards at the club and I have been pretty happy with my form and I want to continue that.”
