Newry City will have another two new players on board in January as they attempt to get away from the Irish Premier League's relegation zone.
Paul Murphy is a Republic of Ireland youth international
Manager Roy McCreadie has secured the signatures of ex-Shelbourne defender Alan McDermott and Republic of Ireland Under-19 goalkeeper Paul Murphy.
McDermott was recently released by Shelbroune and has been training with Newry recently.
The new men will not be eligible to play until January's transfer window.
McCreadie is looking to get Newry away from the relegation danger area.
City fans have been unhappy with the side's performances this season but the pressure was eased a little by last weekend's 1-0 win away to Crusaders.
It was only their third victory in the league campaign and Newry are two from bottom with 11 points from 12 matches.
Last week Newry signed striker Robbie Farrell from Eircom League side Dublin City and former Omagh goalkeeper John Connolly.
