Sligo Rovers confirm signing of former Grimsby Town striker Anthony Elding
FORMER Grimsby Town striker Anthony Elding has completed a move to Irish side Sligo Rovers.
The 30-year-old is the club's third new signing ahead of the coming 2013 Airtricity Premier Division season, which begins next month.
Elding had fallen out of favour at Blundell Park this campaign, and had not figured in a first-team squad since returning from a loan spell at Preston North End earlier in the season.
The move to the reigning Irish champions will see Elding link-up with former Mariner Danny North.

And Sligo boss Ian Baraclough, who himself played for Town between 1990 and 1992, is excited about that partnership.
He told the club's official website : "Anthony will bring a lot of strengths to our squad.
"He has a good record of scoring goals in the Football League with around a one in three ratio. He has played with some very good clubs and has some great experience.
"Danny North is a couple of months away from returning and Anthony will hope to show what he can do.
"The prospect of the possibility of the two together later in the season is exciting."
