Welcome Fra

Following the addition of Philip Donnelly, Newry Manager Darren Mullen has continued his early summer signings bringing in another new face in Fra Brennan.
“Fra is a very welcome addition to the club. He comes with a huge amount of experience and has already shown how valuable he could be for us this season. I was impressed with him when he played against us so it’s good to have him in a Newry shirt. We need to be a lot more competitive this year and signing players of Fra’s calibre can only improve us.”
Fra commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry AFC, it has been one of the great clubs within our local game with so much history past and present. The clubs re-emergence and the success it has achieved on & off the pitch is something I have admired. I told Darren when signing I was happy that I don’t have to play against his sides anymore as I always found the games against Newry extremely challenging and competitive. Hopefully I can help the club to future success.”

Thomas McCann Departs from The Showgrounds

All at Newry City AFC will be sorry to hear that Thomas ‘Tucker’ McCann has decided to move on from The Showgrounds. However having served the club with distinction he will undoubtedly always be a firm fans favourite.
Manager Darren Mullen commented “This is a sad day for the club but Tucker leaves with our best wishes and we have nothing but gratitude for his service over the past seven years. After joining us from local football he excelled at every level we were promoted to playing a huge role in our success. Quiet and unassuming off the pitch he let his football do the talking on it and for me has been one of the best defensive midfielders in the Irish League. We will miss him but he knows that he will forever be welcome at The Showgrounds.”

Thomas Lockhart Contract Extension

There may be no football on the field at the moment but that does not mean that the Newry City management team haven’t got their eye on the ball with Thomas Lockhart the latest player to commit his services to the club.
Manager Darren Mullen commented “We are in the process of securing our squad for next season and with Thomas being a vital part of that it’s great to have him on board for another 2 years. Since he arrived last summer his attitude and ability have been first class. It’s a pity our fans couldn’t have see more of that this season but I’ve no doubt they will get to see plenty of it over the next few years.”
Thomas commented “I’m delighted to be signing this deal with Newry City. Darren and his backroom staff have put together a strong squad that I’m confident will challenge for the league this upcoming season. After the disappointment of last season being voided I’m looking forward to getting back playing down at The Showgrounds again.”
