NCAFC Manager Barry Gray with new signing Gavin Smith

Smith Signs at The Showgrounds

Newry City AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Gavin Smith.


The 24-year-old from Dundalk, who can operate at the back and in midfield, arrives at The Showgrounds following a successful spell with Glebe North in the Leinster Senior League, culminating in winning the FAI Intermediate Cup in April of this year.

He also had spells at Warrenpoint Town and Dundalk earlier in his career.


“It’s fantastic to get Gavin over the line. He’s a central defender I have experience working with before, albeit briefly,” said First Team Manager Barry Gray

“Gavin will bring presence and defensive strength to the panel. He spent the last season playing every week in a very competitive league and was a standout player. He’s driven and can’t wait to kick the season off soon.”


“I’m delighted to sign for Newry,” adds Gavin.

“I want to cement my place in the team firstly and hopefully be able to contribute to getting us back to up to where Newry deserve to be – in the Premiership.

“I’ve played with a few of the boys, either at Warrenpoint or other clubs, so it makes it easier to come in to the changing room. I’m looking forward to getting out onto the pitch, getting to know the rest of the lads and kick on from there.


Gavin will wear the number 5 jersey this season.
