Newry Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to finish his transfer business with the loan of Ciaran O’Connor from Glentoran FC.
Darren Mullen “I said throughout the window that we wouldn’t be signing players for the sake of it and would always hold off for the right type of player. We have waited until the last day for what is a fantastic signing for us in Ciaran. He is a proven top-quality player at this level and is a massive coup for the club. I’ve no doubt he will do well for us and I’m sure the fans are looking forward to seeing him play in a Newry jersey.”
Ciaran O’Connor commented “I am delighted to have this deal sorted to go on loan with Newry, I have watched them over the last few years since they reformed and I have always been impressed with the football they play. I’ve spoken to Darren and really liked how he spoke about the club and what he wants to do. It was great to see the lads get a result last night as I’ve heard their first 3 performances have been really positive so I’m looking forward to getting stuck into training and hopefully contribute to a successful season at The Showgrounds.”
