Mullen welcomes Kieran Gordon to the Showgrounds

Newry Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to add another player to his talented squad with the acquisition of goalkeeper Kieran Gordon.

“The goalkeepers position is one we badly needed cover in. We lost Martin Marron to injury and Jack Heaney has been with Down U21s so it was vital we brought someone in to provide competition for Murph. Kieran comes highly recommended and I’ve spoken to several players who have played with or against him. They have all spoken highly of him and he will be given his chance to impress like every other player in the senior squad. Having two quality players for each position can only be good for the team and hopefully Kieran enjoys his time at the club.’

Kieran Gordon added that he is “delighted to have signed for Newry City. Newry is a club that didn’t need to be sold to me, the facilities and the professionalism of the club are second to none. I am fully aware of the pressure that comes with playing for a big club like Newry and it is a challenge that I’m really looking forward to.”
