Shamrock Rovers have confirmed that defender Simon Madden won't be at the club next season following the expiration of his contract.

 

The Tallaght-born right-back has been the club's most consistent appearance-maker over the past four seasons, and racked up 194 appearances in total over two spells with the club.

 

29-year-old Madden holds the record for the most consecutive appearances for the Hoops with 123 having broken Derek Treacy's record of 110 last season.

 

Rovers' 2016 Player of the Year played his youth football with Cherry Orchard before signing trainee terms with Leeds United as a 16-year-old.

 

He returned to Dublin with Rovers in 2008 after failing to make the breakthrough and after a year-and-a-half with the Hoops, he signed for Darlington, who were managed by Steve Staunton.

 

Six months later he returned to Ireland once more and signed for Dundalk, where he spent two seasons before moving to Derry City.

 

He picked up an FAI Cup medal in 2012 with Derry and spent two years before returning for a second stint at Tallaght Stadium.
