Cian Murphy extends his contract with Galway United

Young defender Cian Murphy has extended his contract with Galway United to return for the Tribesmen in 2020.

The 23 year old centre back came to Galway United last season from St. Mary’s AFC in Cork, making 22 appearances and scoring twice in 2019.

The Cork native will provide further competition in the centre of United’s defence, with Joshua Smith and Killian Brouder already signed up for 2020.

Galway United Manager Alan Murphy said that Cian has learned a lot from his first season in the League of Ireland and he’s keen for the defender to continue his development at Eamonn Deacy Park.

“Cian is a really good guy to work with in terms of his professionalism, he’s a hard worker that also has that level of ambition for both himself and the club going forward.”

Murphy said that it was practically unheard of for someone making their debut in the League of Ireland to feature in over 20 games, but that Cian performed extremely well.

“He fits very well into the squad, Cian has the characteristics that we’re looking for, he’s a really talented player that we hope to develop over the coming years.”
