Eamonn Brophy (born 10 March 1996)[2] is a Scottish professional footballer who plays for Kilmarnock, as a striker. Brophy has previously played for Hamilton Academical, Queen's Park and Dumbarton.

Club career[edit]

Brophy is a product of the Celtic and Hibernian youth systems,[3] but he turned professional with Hamilton Academical in July 2012.[4] He made his senior debut on 9 April 2013, scoring a goal in the process.[5][6][7]

On 6 March 2014, Brophy signed for Scottish League Two club Queen's Park on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.[8] He made his debut for the club on 8 March 2014, scoring in a 3–1 defeat against Clyde.[9]

He joined Scottish Championship outfit Dumbarton on loan in September 2015.[10]

On 18 August 2017, Brophy signed for Kilmarnock, on a three-year contract.[11] On the last day of the 2018–19 season, Brophy's 89th-minute penalty saw Kilmarnock beat Rangers 2–1 to seal a place in the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League - the first time the club had qualified for a European competition since the 2001–02 UEFA Cup.[12][13]

International career[edit]

Brophy has played for Scotland at under-19 level.[14] He was selected for the under-21 squad for the first time in October 2016, for a friendly match against Slovakia,[15] in which he made his debut as Scotland lost 4–0 on 9 November 2016.[16][17]

He received his first call-up to the Scotland senior national team for UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures in May 2019.[18] He made his senior debut on 8 June 2019 in a 2–1 victory against Cyprus at Hampden Park.[19]
