Durnin, Healy & Rushe Re-Sign at The Showgrounds

Newry Manager Darren Mullen continued his close season team rebuilding work securing the services of Josh Durnin, Noel Healy and Tiarnán Rushe. Mullen commented “After securing some of our more senior players it’s important that we balance the squad by keeping our best young players. All 3 lads will have benefitted greatly from Premiership football this year and I’ve every confidence they will take their opportunities to become vital players in the coming season.”

Josh Durnin commented “I would like to thank the Darren and coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to re-sign for Newry. I am delighted to have been given this chance and I can’t wait to get started. Last season obviously ended in a disappointment. However I’ve no doubt next season myself and the team can push on and get back where we belong.”

Noel Healy commented “I am delighted to be staying on at Newry. I have really enjoyed my time here so far and the support I have got has been super, it is a real family club which is what I love. Unfortunately, I broke my wrist at the end of last season playing for the U20s which ended my season earlier than I had hoped, but I am on the road to recovery now and can’t wait for pre-season to come around to get going.”

Tiarnán Rushe commented “You can’t beat the feeling pulling on the jersey for your home town club so I am delighted that Darren has asked me to re-sign. Everyone knows last season didn’t go as we had planned but I know that we have all learned from the experience and we will be better for it next season.”
