Daryl Murphy (born 15 March 1983) is an Irish footballer who plays as a striker or winger for Ipswich Town.

Club career[edit]

Waterford United[edit]

Born in Waterford, County Waterford, Murphy played for local side Southend United before joining English club Luton Town on 14 November 2000.[1] He was released on 18 April 2002 before signing for hometown club Waterford United.[1][2] He scored his first League of Ireland goal in a 3–1 away win over rivals Kilkenny City on 19 September. He scored eight league goals in that last "winter" season as the Blues won the League of Ireland First Division title.[citation needed] In the 2004 season, he notched 14 league goals in the Premier Division which earned him the PFAI Young Player of the Year.[3] In May 2005 he signed a two-year contract at Sunderland.[4]

Sunderland[edit]

Murphy had a one month loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday during the 2005–06 season before he was recalled by Sunderland.[5] On 12 February 2006, he scored his first Premier League goal after coming off the bench at home to Tottenham Hotspur, equalising with minutes to go.[6]

In the 2006–07 season, Murphy scored 10 goals in the Championship despite being used sparingly for the early weeks.[5] He netted one goal each on the opening day of the season against Coventry City and on 12 August against Plymouth Argyle though both matches were lost. Murphy scored his third goal of the season in the Black Cats' 2–1 away win over Queens Park Rangers on 28 November,[7] and then notched in successive games against Norwich City and Luton Town.[8][9] On the final day of the season, he scored two goals against Luton Town while also setting up Anthony Stokes for his goal.[10]

He scored in a pre season friendly against Juventus in August 2007.[11] He scored his third goal of the 2007–08 season against Wigan Athletic on 9 February 2008 at The Stadium of Light.[12] The goal was later chosen by Match of the Day pundits as Goal of the Month for February.[4]

On 26 April 2008, Murphy came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal in a 3–2 victory over local rivals Middlesbrough, securing Sunderland's status in the Premier League for the following season.[13]

Ipswich Town[edit]

On 1 February 2010, Murphy signed for Ipswich Town on loan for the remainder of the 2009–10 season, once again joining up with Roy Keane, his former manager at Sunderland.[14] He marked his first appearance against Middlesbrough with a goal after 23 seconds.[15] He then scored the crucial second goal at Queen's Park Rangers on 9 February,[16] and another in his third appearance against Peterborough, making his record 3 in 3 for Ipswich.[17] Murphy continued his scoring form for Ipswich by scoring a double against Cardiff City on 9 March 2010, handing the Tractor Boys three points.[18]

Celtic[edit]

On 16 July 2010, Celtic signed Murphy on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.[19] He made his debut the following week against Lincoln City and scored his first goal for the club in a 4–1 win.[20] He scored his second pre-season goal against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup on 1 August.[21] Murphy came off the bench to make his SPL debut in a 4–0 victory over St Mirren.[22] The following week, Murphy scored his first league goal for Celtic, the match-winner, in a 1–0 victory over Motherwell from the penalty spot.[23] He scored his second goal for the club again from the penalty spot away to Kilmarnock.[24] On 1 May 2011, Murphy scored his first goal at Celtic Park in a 4–1 victory against Dundee United.[25]

Return to Ipswich Town[edit]

On 30 August 2012, Murphy signed for Ipswich Town again, on a year-long loan.

On 7 June 2013 he agreed a two-year deal with the club, finally making his move permanent after several loan and trial spells (to be formalised on 1 July 2013).[26]

International career[edit]

Murphy won his first call up to the Republic of Ireland National squad due to the absence of Robbie Keane through injury, but was an unused substitute. He made his debut against Ecuador at Giants Stadium on 24 May 2007. He has since earned nine caps, but is yet to score.[27]
