And the good news keeps coming….
Manager Darren Mullen is pleased to have secured the services of John McGovern for another season at The Showgrounds commenting “This is terrific news for the club. John has been a breath of fresh air since he first joined the club and it has been a pleasure watching him develop into the fine young player he has become. I’ve no doubt he will go onto bigger and better things so to have him at the club for at least another year is a huge boost for us all. He knows there are parts of his game that need to improve but his willingness to learn from the coaching staff at Newry and the NI youth international set up will undoubtedly help him get there. John’s current journey is a great example to any local lad of where talent and hard work can get you and I’m delighted he has stayed with us despite interest from elsewhere.”
John added “I am delighted to have signed with Newry City AFC for another season. It’s been a steep learning curve since joining Newry but I am looking forward to continuing my development here. I believe we have a strong enough squad to compete and get promoted next season. I have spoken to Darren and identified areas which I need to improve on personally to help my game.
The support I have been given as a young local player at Newry from the beginning has been incredible and like the rest of the lads I just want to get back playing competitive football at The Showgrounds.”
