It is with great pleasure that we can announce the appointment of Grainne Walsh as the club’s new physiotherapist.
Grainne comes to us with a very impressive CV, having previously worked with the Australian Kangaroos Rugby League team for the Rugby League World Cup in 2013, Aughlisnafin GAC, Dundrum GAC, Castlewellan GAC and London Senior Hurling GAC.
You can find out more about Grainne and the services she offers on her Twitter page @GWSportsClinic and her Facebook page GWSportsInjuryClinic.
We are also pleased to welcome physiotherapist student Janine Hegarty on board at the club. Janine is currently studying at Teeside University in Middlesbrough and she will be working alongside Grainne to gain some experience in this field until she returns to her studies next month.
Newry City AFC are very much looking forward to working with both of the girls in what promises to be a great season ahead.
Senior Team Manager Darren Mullen said of the new appointments:
“We are delighted to welcome Grainne and Janine to the club. They have both proved their worth in the short period of time they have been involved with us and have helped add to the professionalism we are trying to instil at the club.
“Grainne has extensive experience in dealing with sports injuries and we are happy to help Janine in the course of her education.”
He added, “I have no doubt they will continue to provide great assistance off the pitch to allow every possible opportunity for us to succeed on it.”
