Newry City AFC Manager Gary Boyle is delighted to welcome Michael O’Connor to the club as his Assistant Manager on expiration of his contract with Glenavon FC.
Gary commented “Michael comes in to complete the back-room staff as assistant manager along with existing coaches Damien Hillen, Damian McCorry and Mickey Keenan. Michael has had a hugely distinguished and successful playing career thus far and is another massive addition for the club. Having completed my badges with Michael I have seen his work first hand and I know he will be a terrific fit for the club. I am delighted and really excited to be working with him.”
Michael commented “I am really looking forward to working with Gary, the existing coaches and the team. This will be my first year involved in the coaching side but it’s something that I have been looking to do for last year or two. It will be a big challenge for myself and Gary to replicate the job Darren has done for last 10 years but it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to. I would like to thank Gary as well for giving me this opportunity to work with him at a great club.”
