Rogers Extends Contract
Dundalk FC are pleased to announce that Gary Rogers has agreed a new contract at the club.
The goalkeeper who came to Oriel Park ahead of the 2015 season has enjoyed an incredibly successful time winning two league titles, the Leinster Senior Cup, President’s Cup and FAI Cup. That is in addition to playing a key role in the European success of this season which has seen the club reach the group stage of the Europa League.
The Bohermeen native is one of the most experienced players in the league and made his 400th career appearance during the summer having lined out for St. Patrick’s Athletic, Galway United, Bray Wanderers, St. Francis, Dublin City and his home club of Drogheda United.
Speaking to dundalkfc.com after extending his deal, Rogers expressed his delight at getting the deal done before the end of the campaign and is looking forward to what is ‘the biggest game’ of his career next week in Tel-Aviv in the Europa League.
“It’s great to get it done, delighted to continue my career with Dundalk. I wanted to stay so to get things sorted is great.
“It has been terrific at the club. The first year we won the double and then retain the league title this season was brilliant. The three-in-a-row was something that we targeted at the start of the year so to do that was fantastic. The European achievements have been great but we are hoping there is more to come.
“We aren’t finished yet.
“This year nearly every game we have played has been one of the biggest games of our careers! When you think of the first games against FH, then the BATE games and the Legia Warsaw matches. The group stage as well they have all been big matches but when you think of what is at stake next week – to go through to the last 32 of the Europa League it’s a fantastic opportunity.
“If we can grasp that it would be the biggest achievement of all our careers – it’d be incredible.”
