Newry kick off season with win

Newry City enjoyed a successful first game back in the ranks of the Irish League this afternoon with a 3-2 win against Moyola Park at the Showgrounds!

Goals from Timmy Grant, Marty Havern and Man of the Match Mark Hughes gave the hosts a resounding 3-0 lead going into the closing stages of this encounter before two quick-fire Moyola goals in the last few minutes ensured there would be a nervous finish to the match. But thankfully Newry held on to claim a historic win. Full match report to follow.

In other news at the club, Newry have been drawn away to Premiership side Glenavon in the first round of the Mid Ulster Cup. The game will take place on Tuesday 20th September, kicking off at 7:45 pm.
