McGovern Signs at The Showgrounds

As we are only a few days away from kick off in the Bluefin Sport Championship, Newry Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to add talented teenager John McGovern to the squad. Mullen commented “Whilst John is only 16 and signed as one for the future it’s hard to ignore his initial impact. He’s not your normal 16-year-old in terms of his pace and physicality but what we have to do is manage his obvious potential to get the best out of him. I’ve no doubt he will enjoy his football with us and as another local lad it’s a further sign that if you are good enough you will get your chance at the club.”

John McGovern commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry City and am grateful for a chance to play in the NIFL Championship. I would like to thank Windmill Stars for the one on one coaching and positive encouragement that has helped to get me to this stage in my career. I am now looking forward to joining the Newry squad and doing my very best to get the club back to the Premiership. Hopefully I can help get the club promoted with a few goals!”
