Work never stops for a manager as Darren Mullen continues to build his squad for next season by securing the signature of Stefan Lavery for another year.
Mullen commented “Stefan will be the first to admit that his ankle injury hampered him last season but he still showed enough quality to ensure that we wanted to retain his services. He’s a player with a wealth of experience and fitted in extremely well to our group last season so I’m delighted he has agreed to sign a new deal. I’ve no doubt he will prove his quality again this year.”
Stefan Lavery “I’m delighted to have signed again at The Showgrounds, from the minute I put on a Newry City jersey the support and backing from the club and fans has been great, so it was an easy decision!
The squad of players Darren has retained shows the determination to get back up into the Premier League and I look forward to being part of that and I know I speak for all the players that we will work hard to ensure Newry City hit the ground running come the start of the season.”
