“On behalf of Newry City AFC I would like to thank the NI Football League for supplying a defibrillator to us and our fellow member clubs.

We already knew the importance of this piece of equipment and it’s worth was reinforced at the Euros.

With volunteers at the club already trained in the use of defibrillators it is fantastic to receive this from NIFL to help our players, staff & supporters feel safe at The Showgrounds although hopefully we will not need to put it to use.” Newry City AFC Chairman Martin McLoughlin


Press Release from the NI Football League….

The NI Football League can reveal that all member clubs including Newry City will be provided with life-saving defibrillators ahead of the new season.

Following the distressing events at Euro 2020 in Denmark, a risk assessment by the NIFL Board outlined a desire to protect all our clubs to potentially help save the life of someone experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest.

As a result, new defibrillators will be provided to 41 clubs within the NI Football League membership, including all teams in the Premiership, Championship, Premier Intermediate League and Women’s Premiership.

NIFL Chairman Gerard Lawlor said;

“The role of the NI Football League is not just to govern but to serve and protect our membership, and this is an important service that we can offer to our clubs to protect players, supporters and staff.

“Everyone in football got a real shock at the events in Denmark a few weeks ago, so if this project saves one life over a period of time, we simply can’t put a value on that.”

“The health and welfare of the people connected with our clubs is paramount and sincere thanks to my colleagues on the NIFL Board for their support in delivering this vital support.”
