Tonight Newry Manager Darren Mullen announced his first new signing for the 2019/20 season as he welcomed Stevie Moan to The Showgrounds. “After securing most of our players for next season it was vital that we then started adding to it. Stevie comes to us not only with a wealth of Premiership experience but also having won The Championship before so he’s a great signing for us. He can play anywhere in midfield or across the back line and I’ve no doubt he will prove an excellent addition to the squad. I know it wasn’t an easy decision for him but the fact that he’s a Newry lad will help and I’m delighted he has agreed to join us.”
Stevie commented “It’s a great honour joining a club with so much history. When Darren first approached me about signing for Newry straight away I was very interested and knew that it would be a club where I would have a future. Newry has been such a big club over the years and is now a club that wants to push on again. Darren has set his sights on returning to the Premiership and I’m delighted to be on board and am determined be a help in achieving this. It was a very difficult decision leaving Warrenpoint, a club that I have been a part of for so many years but time moves on, it was time for a change and where better than my home town team. From the moment Darren first approached me and having talked to him since I knew it could be an exciting year. Apart from last season the lads here have had great success and in the future with the players we have I’m sure we can regain that winning habit and that’s something I want to be a big part off. I am determined to repay the faith Darren has shown in me and get Newry back into the Premiership.”
