While Gary and Lauren have been trail blazing the Redpath name at The Showgrounds for the last few years next season it will be Jake’s turn to make his mark with Newry City after he signed for the club on Tuesday. Previously attached to Newry as a youth player Jake has enjoyed a number of successful seasons at Rathfriland and more recently at Dollingstown where he won Player of the Year awards in each of the last two seasons which obviously attracted the attention of Newry manager Darren Mullen who commented “Jake is a player who has been on our radar for the past few years and thankfully we have managed to sign him. Since he left the club as a youth player he has developed into a really good defender and I feel he is well fit to play at this level. He is another determined young player that we have added to the squad which means we have quality options throughout every position.”
Jake added “It’s a pleasure to have signed for Newry City, a club that is on its way back to where it deserves to be. I know it’s not going to be easy and there’s going to be a lot of competition for places, but I’m going to give 100 percent and hopefully I can add something to the squad.”
