Newry City Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to announce that our number 16 John McGovern has agreed a new contract to keep him at The Showgrounds.
“This is terrific news for everyone involved with the club and I’m sure our fans will be thrilled. There was strong interest in John within this window so it was vital that we kept hold of his services. He has developed from a raw 16-year-old into a mature youth international player and has become one of the mainstays of our team. The great thing about John is that he is willing to learn and develop even further. To his credit he has been extremely loyal to Newry in agreeing this new deal and understands how much we have helped him in his career to date. Hopefully we can see him progress even further in a Newry shirt.”
John commented “I am delighted to have signed a new deal with Newry City. The continued support both on and off the field during my time here has been incredible so I am very happy to have extended my stay here at Newry. We are away to Ballymena tomorrow night and myself and the lads are ready to give 100% again, hopefully we can put on the performance that the fans deserve.”
