Sligo Rovers ended a 35-year wait for league glory yesterday as they were crowned Premier Division champions in front of 5,621 spectators at the Showgrounds.
Former Rovers boss Paul Cook, now manager of Accrington Stanley, is rumoured to be keen on bringing a number of the title winning players across to link up with him once again at the League Two outfit.
Rovers’ captain Danny Ventre admitted that he has had talks with the Sligo hierarchy, but wasn’t willing to conclude a long term deal, and put off negotiations until the end of the season.
When asked whether or not he felt any of his teammates would be willing to make the move, the scouse midfielder replied: “I’m not so sure, I haven’t spoken to the lads about staying or going.
“There are a lot of home birds here – Jason McGuinness and Mark Quigley among them. I hope everyone does stay, but I couldn’t say, it’s down to the lads.
“This club shouldn’t be waiting 35 years to win a league. Now we should be looking to keep the players for next year. We shouldn’t be waiting another 35 years for the next one.”
