Ex-Newry City Captain Darren King has spoken to Newry Times of his delight the club are poised to make a come back from the wilderness, three months after Newry City FC Ltd was wound up and had its Irish FA membership terminated. Negotiations with the IFA are ongoing but it is thought that the club will be allowed to apply for membership to the Mid-Ulster Intermediate B league next season. “It’s excellent news that the club is re-forming and I’m delighted to hear so having spent almost ten years there as a player”, King told Newry Times earlier this week. Darren is particularly pleased for City’s loyal fans as he believes they are the ones that have been most affected by the downfall of the club. “I’m more so delighted for all the good people connected with the club because for a small number of very committed, loyal and hard working supporters the club was effectively their life. “They put so much time and effort into it and also used it as their social hub. The fact that the club is coming back into existence will give these people something to look forward to again. “When Newry went under I was personally devastated as I’ve been a one club man my whole career and only for the club getting wound up I’d still be there, but as players we were able to go and find other clubs whereas the supporters were left with nothing. He added, “Let’s also hope this is a fresh start for the club from all perspectives, that the people of Newry will come out and support the team this time around as Newry has the potential to be a great club with the facilities available. “Let’s be honest, Newry is too big of a place to have no football club.”
