Glenn Madden has made his first signing as Newtown Rangers and acquired the services of the man they call ‘Crouchy’.
Karl Murtagh has agreed to trade the LSL top flight for Senior 1A and will team up with former coach at Clover Conor Blighe at the Tallaght side.
‘Crouchy’ whose brother Lee Murtagh has played League Of Ireland, was a regular goal getter for the Saturday side and was the star man of their 2014.15 Noel Ryan Cup success.
The striker did get a chance to show his Senior Sunday capabilities at the tail end of last season when he got his chance in the first team over the last five games.
Indeed, he did enough to suggest if they had used him directly after Shane ‘Mario’ Dolan’s they might have just got the goals needed to secure a title they were one point short of claiming.
