Goalkeeper Cieran Slicker Joins From Manchester City

29 July 2022

Rochdale Football Club are delighted to announce signing of goalkeeper Cieran Slicker on loan from Manchester City.

The 19-year-old joins on a season-long loan from the Premier League Champions.

Slicker was a big part of City’s EDS squad last season, making 14 appearances as they clinched the PL2 title, as well as regularly training and travelling with the first team.

He has been with them since the Under-9s, progressing right through the Academy to sign a professional contract in July 2020.

The shot-stopper has also been capped at various youth levels for Scotland, including five Under-21 appearances.

“I’m buzzing,” said Slicker. “When I first got the information about Rochdale [wanting to sign me] I was really excited about the opportunity it was going to bring for me.

“I’m ready for a new challenge which I’m excited for. The aim for me is to play games on a bigger stage. The Academy games are good but I think I’ve kind of past that stage now and I’m ready to kick on.”

Manager Robbie Stockdale commented: “He’s a quality young goalkeeper that will provide really good competition for Rich [Richard O’Donnell] and help develop the younger goalkeepers around him as well.

“We thank Manchester City for their help with that one. We needed two senior goalkeepers in the building, and I think that also benefits the younger ones as well, in that we can get them out on loan for men’s football.”

Welcome to the Crown Oil Arena, Cieran!
