Newry City Friendly Pencilled In

November 8, 2018

Dundalk FC have pencilled in a friendly with Newry City FC at The Showgrounds on Sunday 26 February, kick-off 2pm.

The game against Newry, who currently sit fourth in IFA Championship 1, is set to take place just five days before Dundalk kick off their 2012 Premier Division campaign away to Monaghan United.

The sides recently met in a charity match in aid of The Ryan Cinnamond Trust, where they played out a 1-1 draw at Oriel Park in October.

The game will see John Whyte, who recently took up the position of first-team coach under Seán McCaffrey, return to his old home, having played 219 games for Newry over two spells in the 90s.

All friendlies are subject to FAI approval.
