Hughes & King Re-Sign

Yesterday Newry Manager Darren Mullen promised that there would be more squad announcements in the coming days, this starts off with getting our Club Captain Mark Hughes & Darren King back on board for the 2019/20 season. Mullen commented “It is vital we have a strong spine of experienced quality players for next season and both Darren and Mark fall into that category. Not only are they leaders on the pitch but are also terrific ambassadors for the club. They are as determined as I am to get the club back playing Premiership football and I am delighted to have them back on board for next season.”

Mark Hughes “I’m delighted to have signed for another year at The Showgrounds. I know I can speak on behalf of the team and say that we know we let ourselves down last season, so we will take our break and will be working hard in pre-season to start off on the right foot to hopefully bounce straight back up. I believe that if we add a bit more quality to the squad that we already have we definitely won’t be far away from”

Darren King “With the disappointment of how this season finished, I am delighted to put pen to paper for next season, the most important thing for me is to get back at it straight away and help get our club back to the Premiership. As players we know we have unfinished business in the top league and we need to start working hard from now on. We owe it to ourselves but more importantly we owe it to the fans, manager & coaching staff due to the faith they have shown throughout.”
