Josh Magennis has a new club. The Northern Ireland striker was unveiled as Exeter City's latest signing on Thursday.

Magennis has agreed a one-year contract with the League One club. The 33-year-old was released by Wigan Athletic at the end of last season, having scored 10 goals in 42 appearances during 2023/24.

Exeter boss Gary Caldwell told the club's website: "He is a real proven goalscorer at this level, and the level above, as well as having great international pedigree with Northern Ireland. His experience will be of huge benefit to our younger forwards."

The St James Park club used a novel way to announce the new arrival, getting the Co Down native to pour a can of Guinness - which they had relabelled 'Magennis' - into a pint glass.

It turns out the striker's pouring skills aren't the best, however, with many supporters quick to point out his average-looking pint.

Pete said on X: "Not a great start after the pouring of that Guinness."

Ollie added: "Awful pouring skills."

Northern Ireland fan Stew joked: "Love that big fella! His scoring will be better than his pouring!"

Ian said: "Absolute zero effort put into the pouring of that pint...from an Irishman....absolute sacrilege!!!"

Another fan said: "Tell me you've never poured a Guinness without telling me you've never poured a Guinness."

Gareth said: "That’s a hectic pour. Big man will be a cult hero in no time, some player."

Robert pointed our an error from Exeter City, stating: "Good luck to him but you could have bought the pint cans."

Nazza questioned: "Love it but what is that pour."

Another fan agreed, saying: "The pouring of that drink is criminal."

And Finlay added: "Take him back if he’s gonna pour a pint like that."

Meanwhile, reflecting on his summer move, Magennis said: “This has been in the works for a while, and the communication has been nothing but positive throughout, so it feels really good to get it over the line.

"The ambition of the club really sold it to me, seeing that there is such a young and dynamic squad.”

Magennis also believes regular football at Exeter City can keep him on track to reach a century of caps with Northern Ireland.

The former Hull City striker, who made his international debut back in 2010 against Turkey, currently sits on 79 appearances.

He added: “This is a prestigious club, it’s a fan run club with emotion, and community focused and I’ve seen that early on. At no point did I come here and think my international career wouldn’t continue to flourish and progress.

“My aim is to get 100 and I fully think I will be able to achieve that here at Exeter City, but in football nothing is a given so first and foremost I have to stake my claim in the team here and put in performances that warrant a call up to the national team.”
