WIN £4000 worth of sporting equipment for NCAFC!

1 in 4 local young people struggle with their mental health in Northern Ireland*, a very worrying statistic for any parent or guardian to hear. Taking part in sport has been shown to have both physical and mental benefits for children. Participating in sports and playing in teams provides children with a life-long support system of friends and mentors and can improve their social skills, self-esteem, body confidence, and ability to deal with peer pressure.

That’s why Lidl have launched the Lidl Community Works Sport For Good programme. Their mission is to encourage young people to make the most of the physical and mental benefits of taking part in sports so they can have a healthy body and mind.

Lidl Community Works Sport for Good is giving away £4000 worth of sports equipment to youth sports clubs across Northern Ireland! To find out how you can nominate your club to win visit

Academy Manager Appointed

Newry City AFC are delighted to welcome Marty McGuigan back to The Showgrounds as our Club Academy Manager. With a history both as a player, coach and scout Marty will bring a strong portfolio to the position, a fact not lost to Manager Darren Mullen. “To have Marty on board is a massive coup for the club. He is a perfect fit for what we are trying to do in terms of attracting the best players and coaches to the club. He was the man who got me involved in coaching and I know he will leave no stone unturned in making sure we have the best possible academy. It’s vital that we always have that local heartbeat in our senior team and I’m sure Marty is the best man to ensure we have a continuous flow of the best local talent. It’s an exciting time for the club with plenty of work going on behind the scenes and having an experienced knowledgeable Academy Manager of this stature adds to that.”

Marty commented “For any club to be successful it’s imperative that the correct structures are in place. The club has already got people on board who are tremendously capable and going forward I will ensure that the correct recruitment at all levels takes place so that Newry City develops as an Academy and as a Football Club with strong links to the local community.”
