Newry add Firepower

Newry City AFC are delighted to welcome Striker Stephen McCavitt on a year-long loan deal from Glenavon FC.

Newry Manager Darren Mullen commented “Our lack of goals last season cost us dearly so it’s an area that needed immediate improvement. Stephen will the first signing in that area and I’m delighted to get the deal done. We’ve known about him for a while especially after scoring a screamer against us in the Mid-Ulster Cup Final a few years ago. He joins us after finishing top scorer in the Premier Intermediate League so I’ve no doubt he’s ready for the step up. I know there were numerous other clubs interested in him but he has shown an obvious desire to play for us. I’d like to thank Glenavon manager Gary Hamilton for his help with this deal.”

Stephen McCavitt “I am happy to have signed for Newry City and can’t wait to get going at The Showgrounds. I was delighted when I got the phone call from Darren asking did I want to come down and play at Newry. I look forward to meeting everyone and hopefully I can score goals and do well at this great club.”
