Galway United have announced that Alex Murphy is on board for 2022.
Murphy signed his first professional contract with Galway United in August 2021 and is on board for the 2022 season.
He made the breakthrough into the first team as a 16-year-old in June and has put in some stellar performances since.
The under-age Ireland International joined the club in 2019 as an U15 player, after refining his skills at local Galway side, Corrib Celtic.
He quickly progressed to the U17s and then the U-19s and broke into the first-team squad in 2021, making an assured league debut at left wing-back against Athlone Town at the age of 16.
He then capitalised on this with several first team appearances and tying down a professional contract at Galway United.
Alex has gone on since his debut to play a pivotal role in the Ireland setup, both captaining and scoring for the U18s and helping Ireland secure a 7-1 win over Malta.
