Daniel Murphy has been named Newry City SuperFan 2018/19 at an NI Football League awards ceremony this week at the National Stadium at Windsor Park.

It’s the second year of the Danske Bank Premiership SuperFan Awards, which were launched to recognise supporters who go the extra mile for their clubs – the life blood of the Danske Bank Premiership.

Daniel Murphy is always accompanied by his mum, and the pair never miss a match. They are the life and soul of the supporters bus where they always have tea, coffee, sweets, buns and biscuits for all. A truly wonderful family, and Daniel is a true SuperFan who is loved by all at Newry City.

SuperFan nominations closed on 10 April 2019, with over 300 entries received across all 12 Premiership clubs.

Important message to Club Sponsors!

Newry City AFC were contacted last month with regard to an opportunity with a magazine called “Football Focus Magazine” which would see us feature.

It was decided amongst members of the committee that we would not proceed with this option as we did not feel it was the best thing for our football club.

It has been brought to our attention by one of our sponsors that staff from Football Focus magazine had contacted them explaining that they are doing a spread on our club in turn offering sponsors an opportunity to advertise in the issue for a fee. We would like to make it clear that Newry City AFC has not given any permission for our sponsors to be contacted.

Our Chairman Martin McLoughlin has been in contact with Football Focus today, to state that this should not have happened and to ensure that no more contact should be made to our sponsors without our permission.

If anyone has been approached or contacted by Football Focus magazine, claiming they are acting on our behalf please email

Durnin, Healy & Rushe Re-Sign at The Showgrounds

Newry Manager Darren Mullen continued his close season team rebuilding work securing the services of Josh Durnin, Noel Healy and Tiarnán Rushe. Mullen commented “After securing some of our more senior players it’s important that we balance the squad by keeping our best young players. All 3 lads will have benefitted greatly from Premiership football this year and I’ve every confidence they will take their opportunities to become vital players in the coming season.”

Josh Durnin commented “I would like to thank the Darren and coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to re-sign for Newry. I am delighted to have been given this chance and I can’t wait to get started. Last season obviously ended in a disappointment. However I’ve no doubt next season myself and the team can push on and get back where we belong.”

Noel Healy commented “I am delighted to be staying on at Newry. I have really enjoyed my time here so far and the support I have got has been super, it is a real family club which is what I love. Unfortunately, I broke my wrist at the end of last season playing for the U20s which ended my season earlier than I had hoped, but I am on the road to recovery now and can’t wait for pre-season to come around to get going.”

Tiarnán Rushe commented “You can’t beat the feeling pulling on the jersey for your home town club so I am delighted that Darren has asked me to re-sign. Everyone knows last season didn’t go as we had planned but I know that we have all learned from the experience and we will be better for it next season.”

More good news…

Happy Friday Newry City AFC Fans! We have another little bit of team news for you….

Newry Manager Darren Mullen has secured another year of service from Thomas ‘Tucker’ McCann at The Showgrounds, “If there’s a player at the club who epitomises our rise through the ranks it would have to be Tucker. He has adapted to each league with ease and has been vital in our success. The fact he played the last few months of the season whilst in constant pain shows his commitment to the club and I’m delighted to have him on board again.”

McCann commented “I’d like to thank Darren and the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to play a fifth season for my home town club. We have achieved so much in the last few years and I believe last season will make us stronger in the long run. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans for their continued support for both the club and me personally and I can’t wait to get back at it next season.”
