This week Manger Darren Mullen is doubly delighted with the happy return of Goalkeeper Steven Maguire and a new face at the club in Samuel McIlveen.
Mullen commented “With Tucker leaving it left a gap in midfield and Studsy comes to us with plenty of experience in that area. We’ve had a look at each other over the past number of weeks and he has settled in really well. His range of passing and ability to keep possession suits our style of play so he’s a very welcome addition to the group.
Stevie’s return will undoubtedly go down well with everyone at the club. He was a hugely popular player here and played a big part in our success. We need strong competition in all areas of the pitch and with Blaine understandably committed to Armagh Stevie gives us that along with Mark. He’s an excellent shot stopper and his experience at this level could prove invaluable to us.”
Samuel McIlveen “I’m delighted to sign for Newry City AFC. I have been made feel really welcome from day one. I’m fully aware of the expectations of this club and where they want to be and I am excited to be part of the challenge that lies ahead.”
Stevie Maguire “I am definitely excited to be back at The Showgrounds, I really enjoyed my time at Dollingstown but I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to get back to my home town club. It is going to be a challenging season ahead but looking at the squad we have I’m hoping we can really push for promotion this season and I am looking forward to getting started.”
