A fans favourite will be missing from The Showgrounds this season as Stevie Maguire moves to pastures new at Dollingstown FC. A fans favourite not only because of his undoubted ability and his commitment to the club but also his endearing personality which won him many friendships at The Showgrounds which will remain long past his departure. Newry’s loss is Dollingstown’s gain but who will ever forget those crucial saves in Carrick.
Newry City Manager Darren Mullen commented “It’s fair to say Steven played a huge part in us making it to The Premiership. His performances in The Championship were of an extremely high standard especially in our play-off games. He was an extremely popular member of the squad and his attitude when not playing was an example to any player. I fully understand his wish to play regular football and we wish him all the best at Dollingstown. He knows he will always be welcome at The Showgrounds.”
