Newry City AFC link with Southern Regional College

Newry City AFC are delighted to announce our new partnership with the Southern Regional College. Via this partnership we have welcomed HND Media student Michael Canavan to the club as our new Newry City AFC TV Operator.

Club Press Relations Officer Laura Hillen commented “It is fantastic to have Michael on board. Having match footage is not only a vital tool to aid player analysis for our management team but also helps promote both the football club and our sponsors that do so much for us through our online match highlights. Ally McKenzie & Tommy Harris have made a great platform for Michael to build on and he has already shown in his first few weeks at the club that he is capable of doing so. We are also delighted to give Michael the opportunity to develop his portfolio for his studies”.

Norbrook Launch 50 for 50 in aid of SAH

At Newry City AFC we are absolutely delighted to hear that our Charity Partners, Southern Area Hospice will be partnering with Norbrook Laboratories Ltd for their 50th anniversary celebrations, with their 50 for 50 employee fundraising campaign.

Norbrook employees are organising a number of fundraising events with the aim to raise £50k which will be matched by an equivalent donation from the Company. To help them on their way to their target, a few members of the fundraising team will be attending our Bet McLean League Cup Match v Portadown FC on Tuesday 30th October – any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Southern Area Hospice Services patients will benefit greatly from the money raised from this campaign.

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Norbrook on their 50th Year and wish them many more successful years in business.
