Darragh Lenihan says staying loyal was a big reason for committing his long-term future to Rovers after the Irishman penned a fresh four-year deal.

The defender will now remain a Rover until the summer of 2022 after putting pen-to-paper earlier today.

Speaking after signing, Lenihan admits he felt Rovers deserved his loyalty after allowing him to "fulfil a dream" at the club.

“It's brilliant and now it's sorted out it really puts my mind at peace," the 24-year-old told iFollow Rovers.

"I can really concentrate on getting fit and look forward to the start of the season.

“There was never any doubt that I'd sign, none at all. This club has given me the opportunity to fulfil my dream of becoming a footballer and it was up to me to show my loyalty, which I have done now for the next four years.

"Like I said, I'm looking forward to the start of the season now and hopefully it will be a successful one."

The Dunboyne-born defender believes good times are just around the corner following a disappointing first few seasons at the club.

“Ever since I've come here we have been on a bit of a downward spiral, but during the last year things have really picked up and moved in the opposite direction, especially with the connection the club have with the fans now," he added.

“Whether it's the players or the manager, the connection with the fans has been outstanding and hopefully that can continue into next season and beyond."
