This afternoon Newry City added more quality to their first team panel with the signing of Nathan Murphy.
In his early 20’s Nathan is already an experienced player having previously played for both his hometown club, Dundalk as well as Warrenpoint “I signed a professional contract with Dundalk when I was 16 & continued to play with them for five years, after about a year’s break from football I joined Warrenpoint when they were in the Premiership so I know what the standard of football will be like though due to my own work commitments it didn’t work out.
“Thankfully Darren gave me a call which I was very grateful for, I know a few of the boys already such as John Boyle, Mark Hughes, Kevin McArdle, Jimmy Walker & Stephen Hughes is another fantastic signing Darren has made, so I am looking forward to getting a good pre-season under my belt and help the club push on in the league.”
This signing is further testament to the fact that Newry manager Darren Mullen is not about to rest on his laurels “To add Nathan to the squad shows how attractive the club has become to quality players. He has played international youth football, made over 100 appearances for Dundalk and played premiership football for Warrenpoint so comes with a wealth of experience. We need good quality footballers who can play in several positions and different formations which Nathan can do with ease. He was probably the easiest signing we have made this summer as he just wants to play and enjoy his football which I’ve no doubt he will do.”
