Sloan and Lusty on Loan

Newry City AFC Manager Darren Mullen is delighted to have completed his first bit of business in the January transfer window through the loan signings of Dylan Sloan and Matthew Lusty from Larne FC.

Mullen commented “I knew we needed to freshen things up so I’m delighted to get the two lads in so early in the window. They are both extremely talented players who have represented NI at youth international level and have been regulars in Larne’s Senior Squad this season. From speaking to them both it was clear that they are excited for this challenge and are keen to start contributing on the pitch. Having spoken to their coaches and fellow players both at Larne and NI they both have huge potential. What they now need is more minutes on the pitch and I’m hopeful we can help them fulfil their potential. I’d like to thank Tiernan and the staff at Larne for helping to facilitate both deals.”


“I am really happy to be here and I’m looking forward to getting started. Hopefully we can put together a good run of results between now and the end of the season.”
