Pen Pic

The Waterford-born stopper started his career at Manchester City, vying with the likes of David Seaman and Nicky Weaver for the number one jersey at Maine Road.

The 'keeper was loaned out to Oldham Athletic, then Peterborough United where he made his debut against Brentford.

He switched Manchester for Swansea City where he made 13 appearances during the 2003-04 season. He was phased out by the form of French stopper Willy Gueret.

He went back to his native Ireland where he impressed with Bohemians. He picked up awards for Goalkeeper of the Year in 2007 and Eircom League of Ireland Premier Division Player of the Season for 2008.

His impressive form sparked interest from elsewhere and back in England, Ipswich Town would come calling for Murphy. After sparring with Arran Lee-Barrett for the number 1 jersey, he made only 20 appearances for the Tractor Boys.

He turned down a new deal at Portman Road in favour of joining Premier League newcomers QPR, but timed his injuries unfortunately being unable to deputise when the reliable Paddy Kenny had a stint on the sidelines.

He has one first team appearance in the League Cup defeat to Rochdale in 2011, while he fell behind Julio Cesar and Rob Green in the pecking order.

He was released on 30.06.2015.
