Lawless & O’Keeffe Sign

Newry City AFC are delighted to confirm the signings of Conor O’Keeffe and Stephen Lawless, both players fresh from a spell playing in New Zealand’s top division with Dunedin side Southern United.  

 

Darren Mullen

“The signing of the 2 lads came out of the blue but I’m delighted they have joined the club. From their first training session you could see the quality that both players have. They have taken that into the 3 friendly games and have impressed not only the coaching staff but their fellow team mates. Conor is a classy defender who makes things look really simple and Stephen has brought plenty of energy and creativity to our midfield. I’m looking forward to seeing them play for us this season and contributing to what is now a really competitive squad. I’d like the thank their former coach Paul O’Reilly for recommending both signings.”

Conor O’Keeffe

“I’m delighted to sign for Newry City. It’s been a really enjoyable few weeks since I came in. Everyone at the club has been so welcoming and have made me feel part of the club straight away. I have played three games now in pre-season and the style of play has been enjoyable to play in. I’m looking forward to the rest of pre-season, getting fully fit and helping the team push for promotion back up to the Premiership.”

Stephen Lawless

“I am very happy to link in with Darren and the rest of the group ahead of the new season. Straight away there’s been a very welcoming and positive vibe about the place between staff members, players and other club people, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck into pre-season and working hard after some months off due to COVID. Hopefully I can hit the ground running ahead of the new season and help make an impact on what should be an exciting season for the club.”
