Rogers Signs New Contract

St Patrick's Athletic are very pleased to confirm that goalkeeper Danny Rogers has signed a new contract with the club.

Danny joined us in August 2022 and made 10 league starts during that season, his only appearance last season (2023) was in a 3-1 defeat to Wexford in the Leinster senior Cup in January.

The 29-year-old picked up a serious thumb injury during the warm up for the match against Shelbourne last February on just the second night of the 2023 season, which kept him out for a number of months.

Rogers' made his first start for The Saints on August 14th 2022 (the same day he signed) against Sligo Rovers, keeping a clean sheet on his debut in a 1-0 win at Richmond Park.

St Pat's won five league games in a row during Danny's initial run in the team, he was on the winning side in seven of his ten league appearances, keeping two clean sheets, as we finished 4th and qualified for Europe.

Danny was also nominated for our 'Manguard Plus' Player of the Month in August and September 2022 and signed a new contract with in December 2022 ahead of the 2023 campaign.

Rogers said:

"I'm delighted to sign a new deal with St Pat's and I'm looking forward to the new season.

I really enjoyed my first few months at the club and my first time playing in the League of Ireland, after signing in the summer window and making my debut that day against Sligo Rovers.

Everyone was very welcoming and helpful and it's a special club to play for, the supporters have been brilliant with us.

This season didn't go to plan for me personally due to my injury but it was an excellent season for the club, qualifying for Europe and winning the FAI Cup on a special day at The Aviva a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully we can do more of the same next year."

Manager Jon Daly added:

"I'm really pleased that Danny has signed back for 2024.

He has proved to be an excellent goalkeeper throughout his career.

He was very unfortunate last year with a freak injury at the start of the campaign.

Now, back to full fitness, I'm sure he will be determined to push on and get back in the team."

The Dubliner, who was born in New York, began his schoolboy career with Belvedere FC, before moving to Cherry Orchard. 

Rogers joined Aberdeen in 2011 and made over 160 senior appearances during his 10 years in Scotland with Dumbarton, Falkirk and Kilmarnock among his most notable clubs. 

He was named Dumbarton Player of the Year at the end of the 2014-2015 season and was part of the PFA Scotland Championship Team of the Season the following year.

Rogers has been capped 10 times by the Ireland U21s and was also in the Ireland senior squad in 2016 during Martin O'Neill's time in charge of the Boys In Green.

The goalkeeper made 22 appearances for Oldham Athletic in England's League 2 during the 2022 season before joining St Pat's.
