Newry Manager Darren Mullen “After what has been a long break it’s good to bring some positive news to the club with the signing of the two lads. I’ve been trying to sign Thomas for a while now and thankfully the circumstances suit both parties. He’s strong quick and direct which is what we need in the final third. His experience and the fact he knows a lot of the lads will give the dressing room a big lift. Jimmy is someone we obviously know well and without doubt one of the main reasons why we were so successful during our first 5 years. His skill and ability to pick a pass will be a big asset to our attacking play this year.
On a different note I’d like to thank Andy Coleman, Adam Foley, Stefan Lavery and Briann Cabraley who have left the club. They have all been great lads to work with and whilst we wish them all the best for the future they know they will always be welcome at The Showgrounds.”
