Newry Manager Darren Mullen has clinched the deal of the transfer window by securing the signing of Newry favourite Declan Carville. Mullen commented “Declan returning to The Showgrounds is a huge signing for the club in more ways than one. We’ve missed him both on and off the pitch and I know the fans, players and coaching staff will be delighted with his return.
His departure from the club at the end of last season was not how anyone would have wanted it to play out but we made our peace soon after and I know he will want to show how determined he is to bring success to the club. We’ve missed his physicality and leadership which as we’ve seen already is badly needed in this league. After speaking to David Jeffrey I know he did not make the decision to allow him to leave lightly but I can’t thank him enough for agreeing to make it happen. Unfortunately, he’s not available this weekend but will be straight into the squad for the Knockbreda game next Tuesday.”
Welcome back to The Showgrounds Declan!
