Shamrock Rovers Football Club can confirm that striker, Gary Twigg will leave the club at the end of the current season.
Twigg will be out of contract after the game against Sligo Rovers on October 26 and will not sign a new deal with the club. The striker expects to sign for an Irish League club when he leaves the Hoops.
Friday night will be Twigg’s last game at Tallaght Stadium – a venue in which he scored the first ever goal. And the club is encouraging all Rovers fans to come along on the night to give him a warm Rovers send off.
Speaking ahead of his final home game for the Hoops, Gary said: “I want to thank everyone at the club, the manger who brought me in, and those I’ve played under this season, for everything they have done for me over the past four seasons. And I especially want to thank the fans, they have been brilliant to me and I couldn’t have achieved what I did at the club without them.
"I also want the fans to know that I am only leaving to be nearer my family. I don’t want to leave the club and wouldn’t be if it was only a football decision, but it isn’t. My family is the most important thing to me and I had to make this decision for their sake. I loved played for Rovers and have great memories from my time here.”
