A familiar face will be missing at The Showgrounds next season with Chris McMahon deciding not to re-sign for 18/19. All at Newry City AFC would like to thank Chris for everything he has done for the club since NCAFC was reformed.
Manager Darren Mullen commented “I spoke to Chris over the summer and we both agreed that he needs to play more football. He has been very unlucky with injuries and hasn’t played as much as he would have liked over the past few years. His contribution to the club’s return to top flight football cannot be underestimated in any way. He was the first player that I signed once we reformed and I’ve no hesitation in saying he was the most important one. His ability and leadership qualities gave us the platform for our early success and he has been a very worthy captain of the club. How he has conducted himself on and off the pitch in his role as club captain has been a credit to himself and his family. I’ve no doubt he will continue to perform to a high level wherever he plays and he will always be welcome back at The Showgrounds.”
