Portadown Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Niall Currie as the club’s new manager.

Niall joins from Lough 41 Championship club Dundela who he joined in September 2021 following three years at the helm of Carrick Rangers.

The 50-year-old, who has had stints in charge of Ards, Loughgall and Annagh United returns to Shamrock Park for a second spell as manager after previously managing the club between 2016 and 2018.

Joining the backroom team will be Clifford Adams and John McAllister who have worked with Niall at both Carrick Rangers and Dundela.

Niall commented:

I’m delighted to be back at the club, leaving Dundela was a massively hard thing to do with where we have the club now, but for me, it’s unfinished with my hometown club and I will do everything I can to keep this club in the Premiership

We want to thank Dundela FC for their co-operation during this process and the professionalism they showed throughout.

Any announcements regarding other backroom staff will be announced in due course.
