Mullen on the Case

Newry City AFC Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to confirm the loan signing of Odhran Casey from Cliftonville FC.

Mullen commented “With Ryan McGivern out injured for a while and some of our defenders playing with injuries it was important to make sure we didn’t leave ourselves short in that area. I spoke to Paddy McLaughlin earlier in the week about Odhran and I’m delighted to be able to bring a player of his quality in at this stage of the season. He has played for Cliftonville’s first team and is a former youth international so although only 19 he comes with experience and at 6’2’’ will give us an aerial presence that we currently lack. I feel we now have a squad fit to cope with the run in and Odhran is a very welcome addition to the club.”

Odhran Casey “I am very happy to sign for Newry on loan until the end of the season and I am looking forward to the new challenge. I watched the lads play on Friday night against Dundela and I was really impressed with the football they play. The atmosphere at the ground was brilliant, there seems to be a great buzz around the place so I can’t wait to get started and be part of the push towards a return to the Premiership.”
