It is with deep regret and great sadness that we learn of the death of Sam McCullough on Saturday afternoon after a lengthy illness.
Sam, in his 89th year, was a lifelong supporter and true friend of Newry Town/City FC.
He was first elected Chairman of the club in the mid fifties when it was competing in the Irish Alliance League. As Chairman he played a leading role in the high profile transfers of Peter Watson (to Aston Villa FC) and Pat Jennings (to Watford FC) during the early sixties and later held the position of Club President for a long number of years.
We extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to his loving Wife Betty and the entire McCullough Family.
