Newry Manager Darren Mullen has reacted to a slow start to the season by adding the experienced Danish midfielder Benjamin Möller Nielsen to his squad “With our mixed start to the season and unfortunate run of injuries, bringing someone of Benny’s quality in at this stage was an easy decision to make. I spoke to David Healy about Benny and he couldn’t speak highly enough of him. He just needs to play regular football to find his undoubted potential. By moving to Newry he has shown a tremendous desire to play for the club and I’ve every confidence he will do well for us.”
Benny commented “I am delighted to have signed with Newry City. I had a great time with Linfield last season, everyone at the club was very kind to me but I had limited first team game time so I felt I needed to move on and Newry looks like the perfect place for me. I was on the bench for Linfield last season when they grabbed a late winner at The Showgrounds and was very impressed with Newry’s football. I’ve received a great reception at the club so far and I am looking forward to getting stuck in and help the team climb up the league.”
