Newry City AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Barney McKeown on expiration with his contract at Portadown FC.
Gary Boyle commented “Barney is a player we all know and trust having played at The Showgrounds in the 19/20 season. He’s the profile of player we are looking for, has played and captained a team in the Premiership at the tender age of 21; we are sure his development will continue and his best years are with us at NCAFC.
His desire to remain in the Premiership and return to the club is testament to his character and we are delighted to have him on board.
I would like to thank David Campbell from David Campbell Sports Management Ltd for his professionalism and assistance with the deal.”
Barney commented “It’s great to sign for the club again. I really enjoyed my time at The Showgrounds in my first spell even though I didn’t get the game time l would have liked through injury problems. Last season I was able to fend the injuries off so I am hoping that will continue, I’m looking forward to getting back into the dressing room and start to prepare for the season ahead.”
