McKeown Signs at The Showgrounds

It was a busy day at The Showgrounds yesterday with match day and deadline day rolled into one and on the final day of the transfer window Manager Darren Mullen was delighted to nail down the signature of ex Everton Academy Star Barney McKeown, “I’m thrilled to finally get Barney signed at the club (subject to International Clearance). There has been obvious interest from other clubs but he has enjoyed training with us and knows he will get a genuine chance to play regular first team football. I’ve followed his progress at Everton and although things didn’t work out the way he had hoped it has been a great experience for him and one that I’m hoping we will see the benefit of.’

Barney McKeown commented “I am delighted to sign for Newry. I’m looking forward to getting out onto The Showgrounds in front of the fans. Can’t wait for the challenge and to working with the players and staff. I’m hoping to hit the ground running and give as much as I can to the team.”
