Dundalk have announced the departure of 27-year-old left-back Dean Jarvis, after two years with the north-east club.

Jarvis paid tribute to the Lilywhites' supporters in a statement on the club's official website today.

“I would like to thank the staff the fans and especially the players for making the past two years the best in my career to date. The success and memories we all had together are something I’ll never forget. All the best going forward to everyone and thank you all,” said the 27-year-old.

Jarvis scored in the penalty shoot-out in their EA Sports Cup final win over Derry City. The match had finished 2-2 after normal time at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Head Coach Vinny Perth paid tribute to the defender on news of his departure, pointing out that his young family was one of the reasons behind his exit.
