Benjamin Möller Nielsen Signs at The Showgrounds

Newry Manager Darren Mullen has reacted to a slow start to the season by adding the experienced Danish midfielder Benjamin Möller Nielsen to his squad “With our mixed start to the season and unfortunate run of injuries, bringing someone of Benny’s quality in at this stage was an easy decision to make. I spoke to David Healy about Benny and he couldn’t speak highly enough of him. He just needs to play regular football to find his undoubted potential. By moving to Newry he has shown a tremendous desire to play for the club and I’ve every confidence he will do well for us.”

Benny commented “I am delighted to have signed with Newry City. I had a great time with Linfield last season, everyone at the club was very kind to me but I had limited first team game time so I felt I needed to move on and Newry looks like the perfect place for me. I was on the bench for Linfield last season when they grabbed a late winner at The Showgrounds and was very impressed with Newry’s football. I’ve received a great reception at the club so far and I am looking forward to getting stuck in and help the team climb up the league.”

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.”

Tom Allen Rest In Peace


All at Newry City AFC are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a great club friend, supporter & sponsor Tom Allen.

Tom made his last visit to The Showgrounds on Saturday past when we had the privilege of welcoming his family as our special guests. Tom was also a great friend to many other football clubs and his passing will be felt across the football family.

However it was at Newry that Tom felt most at home and where his passing will be most felt.

Rest in Peace Tom.
