Newry City AFC First Team Manager Gary Boyle is delighted to welcome Ciaran O’Connor back to the club as his first new signing for the 23/24 campaign. O’Connor is no stranger to The Showgrounds having had a short loan period with us last season and we are sure the City fans will look forward to welcoming him back.
Boyle commented “Ciaran is a player proven at this level who will add genuine quality at the top end of the pitch. He is versatile and can play in a number of positions which gives us options and flexibility.
Ciaran has come from a full-time environment and I know he will bring professionalism and help to drive the high standards already set by the squad.
He is a good character and bedded in really well with the group in his loan spell here previously.
It’s an exciting signing for the club and I know the supporters will enjoy watching him play!”
O’Connor added “My loan spell at the club last season didn’t really go as planned with my long suspension, I loved my time at the club which unfortunately was more so off the pitch with the team at training and chatting to the people around the club so I am really grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the fans on the pitch and enjoy my football again. I can’t wait to get going.”
