Newry City AFC Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to confirm the loan signing of Odhran Casey from Cliftonville FC.
Mullen commented “With Ryan McGivern out injured for a while and some of our defenders playing with injuries it was important to make sure we didn’t leave ourselves short in that area. I spoke to Paddy McLaughlin earlier in the week about Odhran and I’m delighted to be able to bring a player of his quality in at this stage of the season. He has played for Cliftonville’s first team and is a former youth international so although only 19 he comes with experience and at 6’2’’ will give us an aerial presence that we currently lack. I feel we now have a squad fit to cope with the run in and Odhran is a very welcome addition to the club.”
Odhran Casey “I am very happy to sign for Newry on loan until the end of the season and I am looking forward to the new challenge. I watched the lads play on Friday night against Dundela and I was really impressed with the football they play. The atmosphere at the ground was brilliant, there seems to be a great buzz around the place so I can’t wait to get started and be part of the push towards a return to the Premiership.”
