McCart Signs at The Showgrounds

Newry City AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Odhran McCart upon expiration of his contract with Larne.


The 19-year-old centre-back arrives from Inver Park, following a successful loan spell with Ards in the second half of the 2023/24 season.


Having previously come through the Larne Youth Academy, Odhran has also captained Northern Ireland Under-18s in the Centenary Shield last year.


First Team Manager Barry Gray is pleased to have secured the signing of the promising young defender for the forthcoming campaign. 


It’s great to get Odhran on board. He’s a young central defender who likes to play with the ball at his feet,” said Gray.

Odhran has good pedigree and is a welcome addition to our defensive set up. I look forward to working with him in the season ahead.”


Odhran’s looking forward to getting started in the blue and white stripes.


“I’m delighted to get everything signed and confirmed with Newry,” he said.


I had a lot of options in the Championship, but after speaking to Barry I knew straight away his plans this year were something I wanted to be a part of.

“I’m now just looking forward to playing in front of the fans at The Showgrounds.”


Odhran will wear the Number 27 jersey for the club for the 2024/25 season.
