COLERAINE FC is pleased to announce that Stephen Lowry has signed a new one-year contract…
The midfielder has agreed terms that will see the Limavady man remain at The Showgrounds for the remainder of this season – if played to a conclusion – and the following campaign.
The 33-year-old is currently enjoying his second spell on the Ballycastle Road and has made 247 appearances, scoring 37 times in the process.
Lowry has been in fine form so far this season and scored in the BetMcLean League Cup final win over Crusaders back in February to lift his first piece of silverware as a Coleraine player.
Bannsiders boss Oran Kearney spoke of his delight at the news and praised Lowry for his contribution so far this season.
“It was well documented that we didn’t want Stephen to leave the club in the first place, but despite getting a year or two older, he has maintained the same weight and still plays like a 25 or 26 year old,” he said.
“He has been outstanding this season and has shown a high level of consistency in his performances.
“He is like a fine wine and is getting better with age and he sets a great example to all.
“Stephen is a great guy, he is well liked and we are delighted to have him at the club.”
