NCAFC Irish Cup Withdrawal

After careful consideration and discussion between players, management and committee it has been decided that Newry City AFC will regrettably withdraw from the 20/21 season Irish Cup.
This decision has been heavily influenced by the fact that our league has not been granted elite status this season. A decision to grant our league elite status would have allowed us to play our normal league fixtures and prepare for a cup fixture of this importance in a fair and proper manner, giving the competition the respect its status deserves.

We will now look forward to a resumption of competitive football next season and welcoming all football fans back to The Showgrounds.

Jackie McCullough RIP

It is with much sorrow that we have learnt of the passing of Jackie McCullough, former Manager of Newry Town FC from 1973 to 1976.
Jackie had a successful time with “The Town” winning the Mid Ulster Cup during the 1974/75 season. During the same season the club also won the South Section of the B League Championship before losing by a 4-3 margin to the winners of the North Section Carrick Rangers in a thrilling test match decider at Dixon Park Ballyclare.
He, however, down through the years always maintained an interest in Newry Town/ City/City AFC and was always a welcome visitor to The Showgrounds. We were delighted to have Jackie as a guest at our Centenary Dinner of The Town/ City/City AFC in the Canal Court Hotel last year.
All at Newry City AFC would like to extend our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to Jackie’s wife Dorothy, family and friends. May he Rest in Peace.

Robbie Brunton Rest In Peace

All at Newry City AFC are deeply saddened to learn of the death of former Newry Town / City full back Robbie Brunton. Robbie hailed from Dublin and was just 47 years of age.
He developed a fine reputation as a teak tough all action left back and was quite an expert in converting penalty kicks.
Indeed it was Robbie who in 2003 scored the the crucial penalty goal for Newry just minutes from the end of the promotion/relegation decider against Bangor FC at The Showgrounds. A goal that kept the club in senior football.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to all the Brunton family.
May he Rest in Peace
