PLAYER BIO

The vastly experienced midfielder, who also manages the club’s under-17 team, is a Galway United legend, having scored 73 goals for the Tribesmen.

Murphy trails all-time top scorer Paul “Ski” McGee by just a single goal.

The 36-year-old began his League of Ireland career at Eamonn Deacy Park at the tender age of 16, but quickly managed to establish himself as a first team regular.

Under Tony Mannion in 2003, Murphy enjoyed possibly his standout season at Eamonn Deacy Park, scoring 21 league goals in the First Division for United.

Moves to Derry City, Shamrock Rovers and Mervue United followed for Murphy before returning to Galway to play for junior side West United.

Murphy signed a contract with United until the end of the 2018 season.
