We are delighted to announce that Niall Currie has signed a new three-year contract to remain as manager of Portadown Football Club.

This new deal will see the manager remain at Shamrock Park until the summer of 2027.

Currie, who took over the reigns at the club for a second spell in October 2022, led Portadown to the Playr-Fit Championship last season and promotion at the first time of asking back to the Premiership. He also guided the club to a first Mid-Ulster Cup in over 20 years as well as reaching the BetMcLean Cup Final and the Quarter Final of the Irish Cup.

On Niall penning a new deal Portadown Chairman David Jameson commented

I am delighted that Niall’s journey with his home town club will continue.

This is a boost to everyone as we embark on a new season and our return to the Premiership.

Niall & his team brought great success to Portadown last season and we look forward to him bringing further success in the coming years.

After inking the contract Currie told of his delight by saying

I’d like to thank our board, this is a huge honour and privilege to be asked to manage this club for another 3 years. It shows belief and commitment and that means everything to any manager.

I’d like to thank all my backroom staff as without them these things don’t happen, the work to establish our club again at the top table has already begun and myself and the staff can’t wait to get started and play against the very best.

Thank you to all our supporters who gave us the 12th man all season and backed us throughout, let’s go.
