McKeown Signs at The Showgrounds

It was a busy day at The Showgrounds yesterday with match day and deadline day rolled into one and on the final day of the transfer window Manager Darren Mullen was delighted to nail down the signature of ex Everton Academy Star Barney McKeown, “I’m thrilled to finally get Barney signed at the club (subject to International Clearance). There has been obvious interest from other clubs but he has enjoyed training with us and knows he will get a genuine chance to play regular first team football. I’ve followed his progress at Everton and although things didn’t work out the way he had hoped it has been a great experience for him and one that I’m hoping we will see the benefit of.’

Barney McKeown commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry. I’m looking forward to getting out onto The Showgrounds in front of the fans. Can’t wait for the challenge and to working with the players and staff. I’m hoping to hit the ground running and give as much as I can to the team.”

McGovern Signs at The Showgrounds

As we are only a few days away from kick off in the Bluefin Sport Championship, Newry Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to add talented teenager John McGovern to the squad. Mullen commented “Whilst John is only 16 and signed as one for the future it’s hard to ignore his initial impact. He’s not your normal 16-year-old in terms of his pace and physicality but what we have to do is manage his obvious potential to get the best out of him. I’ve no doubt he will enjoy his football with us and as another local lad it’s a further sign that if you are good enough you will get your chance at the club.”

John McGovern commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry City and am grateful for a chance to play in the NIFL Championship. I would like to thank Windmill Stars for the one on one coaching and positive encouragement that has helped to get me to this stage in my career. I am now looking forward to joining the Newry squad and doing my very best to get the club back to the Premiership. Hopefully I can help get the club promoted with a few goals!”

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. 💬
