McCaul & Moody Re-Sign

With the new season just around the corner Newry Manager Darren Mullen has bolstered his squad by re-signing Conor McCaul and Karl Moody.

 

 

💬 Conor is the only remaining player from Intermediate B and has stepped up with ease to each level. His defensive capabilities and ability to take the ball out of defence have played a big part in our success and I’m delighted he came back from Australia earlier than planned.

 

 

 

 

Karl came to us at a difficult stage of the season last year and it’s never easy for any player never mind a forward coming into a relegation battle. That said he acquitted himself well and quickly became a popular lad within the group. He showed enough within that period to earn himself a new deal and I’m hoping he can be a valuable player for us this year. 💬

Lennon Signs at The Showgrounds

Newry Manager Darren Mullen has continued to add to his squad securing the signature of experienced defender Ultan Lennon. Mullen commented “With Dara Noonan going to Australia and with Paddy Mooney still injured centre back was the one area that we still needed more depth in. Ultan joins us having played a huge part in Armagh City’s success in previous years and he is a player we tried to sign before. He has great potential and I feel that he can make a big contribution for us this season

Ultan Lennon “After many enjoyable years playing at Armagh City FC I am sad to leave but I am ready for a new challenge with Newry.  I know last season was tough for the team but I know Newry have the capability to be an established Premiership Club with the fans and facilities that are here and I hope that I can help make that happen.  I am familiar with a number of past and present Newry players who have told me great things about the club and hold Darren in high regard, so I am looking forward to the challenge ahead and can’t wait to get started.”

Maguire Moves On

A fans favourite will be missing from The Showgrounds this season as Stevie Maguire moves to pastures new at Dollingstown FC. A fans favourite not only because of his undoubted ability and his commitment to the club but also his endearing personality which won him many friendships at The Showgrounds which will remain long past his departure. Newry’s loss is Dollingstown’s gain but who will ever forget those crucial saves in Carrick.

Newry City Manager Darren Mullen commented “It’s fair to say Steven played a huge part in us making it to The Premiership. His performances in The Championship were of an extremely high standard especially in our play-off games. He was an extremely popular member of the squad and his attitude when not playing was an example to any player. I fully understand his wish to play regular football and we wish him all the best at Dollingstown. He knows he will always be welcome at The Showgrounds.”
