Newry City AFC Manager Gary Boyle is delighted to have added extra strength to his team with the signings of Daragh Owens and Georgie Poynton from Glebe North FC.
Commenting on both players Boyle said “Georgie is a player who has played at the top level in the LOI. He is hugely experienced but at only 25 has his best years ahead of him. He has been regaining his fitness with us in pre-season and we have seen the quality he possesses. He is vocal, sets standards and has integrated with the group seamlessly.”
“Daragh is a young player who was recommended to us; he is ready to step up having excelled in the Leinster League. Technically gifted, composed in possession, with a great left foot. He has been terrific in preseason and we are thrilled to have him on board!”
Daragh commented “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to sign with Newry. I have really enjoyed the last few weeks both training and getting to know the lads. The standard has been very good since day one, so I’m just looking forward to getting the season underway and show what we can do.”
Georgie commented “I have been really impressed by the club since coming in to train. The players and staff have been very welcoming. I’m delighted to be here and I am really looking forward to get going.”
