Newry Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to add Blaine Hughes to his Goalkeeping options.
“It was obvious we needed good competition in the GK area with Mark the only senior keeper at the club. Blaine has shown his qualities playing for Armagh seniors in recent years so that experience will stand him in good stead in terms of making the transition to soccer. He’s vocal, strong in the air and can pick a good pass so is another welcome addition to the club.”
Blaine commented “I am really excited about joining Newry. Having previously played for the club at youth level I knew the fantastic set up the club have and what I was coming to. After not playing soccer for a while I am very grateful to Darren for giving me the opportunity to play at a high standard and after meeting the management team and players I can’t wait to get stuck into training and see what the season brings.”
