Sligo Rovers' gesture to the county's football supporters shows a county at unity with itself

Sligo Rovers return to League Of Ireland action after the mid-season break and they are doing everything possible not to lose any of their loyal following to the county's senior football side who defeated Antrim on Saturday.

Sligo find themselves in the bottom three of the League Of Ireland table and the club are aiming to ensure that support remains strong for the team.

The club have offered any supporters who went to the football game in Markievicz Park a 20% discount on their tickets for their clash with Galway United.

This is a true example of a club thinking with their head. The majority of sports fans have a wide-ranging interest in the game. Their interest doesn't stop at one sport.

Sligo's football supporters were treated with a blockbuster display from their side, who totally outclassed Antrim in a highly impressive second half performance to win 0-22 to 3-7.

Their supporters will have been enchanted with what they say, and will undoubtedly be eager for more action.

What better way to spend the evening, with the beautiful weather around the country tonight, than to go straight to Showgrounds for the Rovers' soccer game against rivals Galway United.

It's small gestures like this that can endear a club to their supporters and it's exactly how supporters should be treated.

It's common sense gestures like this that we should see more of from sports teams.
