PLAYER BIO

Alex Murphy is back for 2022!

Alex joined the United Academy as a 14 year-old, quickly progressing through the U15, U17 and U19 levels. He broke into the first team squad in 2021, making an assured league debut at left wing-back against Athlone Town on 11/6/2021, still aged just 16.

Academy coach Martin Devlin describes Alex as an elegant, ball-playing centre-back, who is comfortable bringing possession out of defence and finding his teammates in midfield with a pass.

Alex signed his first professional contract with United in August 2021. Manager John Caulfield said “He’s one of our own and we’re delighted to have him sign his first professional contract in what we hope will be a great career."

Alex's impressive form has also received international recognition, with him captaining and scoring for the Ireland U18's, and being called up as a standby for the U21 squad.
