Role First Team Manager / Under-17 Manager


Murphy has signed a contract with the club until the end of the 2018 SSE Airtricity League season.

The 36-year-old has been in charge of United’s under-17 team over the last two seasons and will remain in that role whilst carrying out his duties with the first team.

Murphy became Galway United’s all-time leading scorer earlier this season when he scored his 75th league goal for the club against Cobh Ramblers.

The Ballinrobe native began his League of Ireland career at Eamonn Deacy Park and quickly established himself as a first team regular. Under Tony Mannion in 2003, Murphy enjoyed what was possibly his standout season with the club, scoring 21 league goals in the First Division.

Moves to Derry City, Shamrock Rovers and Mervue United followed for Murphy before returning to Galway to play for local junior side West United. The midfielder rejoined United’s first team earlier this year.
