Deane Watters Signs

Darren Mullen is delighted to add talented midfielder Deane Watters to his squad in preparation for the 20/21 season.

Deane commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry, I feel that the club is a great fit for me, the style of football played here will really suit the type of player I am. I feel I have a lot to prove to myself and other people, I think playing at this club with the players we have in the squad will definitely help me do this.
I’m really looking forward to kicking on with preseason and eventually start the league. I know this team has the potential to be a front runner for promotion this year and hopefully we can get the club back where it should be in the Premiership.”
