Alan Murphy leaving role at Galway United

Galway Daily sport Alan Murphy leaving role at Galway United

Galway United are seeking a new manager after parting ways with Alan Murphy this week following a string of poor showings for the club.

Murphy, a Ballinrobe native who was the club’s all time top scorer as a player, became the top manager in July 2018.

The 2020 season has not been kind to United, as the club currently sits second from the bottom on the SSE Airtricity League.

In the past seven games Galway has had four draws and three defeats, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss to Drogheda Town on Sunday.

In a short statement, Galway United confirmed that Murphy was departing in the aftermath of that game.

“Galway United FC can confirm that they have decided that Alan Murphy will leave his role as First Team Manager at the club.”

“We would like to thank Alan for all of his hard work and wish him all the best in the future.”

“We will not be commenting further on the matter and will begin the search for a successor immediately.”
