Academy Manager Appointed

Newry City AFC are delighted to welcome Marty McGuigan back to The Showgrounds as our Club Academy Manager. With a history both as a player, coach and scout Marty will bring a strong portfolio to the position, a fact not lost to Manager Darren Mullen. “To have Marty on board is a massive coup for the club. He is a perfect fit for what we are trying to do in terms of attracting the best players and coaches to the club. He was the man who got me involved in coaching and I know he will leave no stone unturned in making sure we have the best possible academy. It’s vital that we always have that local heartbeat in our senior team and I’m sure Marty is the best man to ensure we have a continuous flow of the best local talent. It’s an exciting time for the club with plenty of work going on behind the scenes and having an experienced knowledgeable Academy Manager of this stature adds to that.”

Marty commented “For any club to be successful it’s imperative that the correct structures are in place. The club has already got people on board who are tremendously capable and going forward I will ensure that the correct recruitment at all levels takes place so that Newry City develops as an Academy and as a Football Club with strong links to the local community.”
