Murray extends Cork City stay

Cork City favourite Dan Murray has committed to the club for the 2013 season.

The man who previously captained City to league, FAI Cup and Setanta Cup titles, returned to Turner’s Cross last year after a spell with Shamrock Rovers, during which he experienced an extended European run.

City boss Tommy Dunne said he was delighted to have the 30-year-old in the ranks for the new season.

“Dan has made a huge commitment to be with the club again for the 2013 season, and I am thrilled to have him on board,” said the manager.

“He had a bad time with injuries last season but he is moving a lot better now in training and I think he is much more like the Dan Murray of old.

“What he went through last year with injuries was not pleasant, and without people even knowing about it, he played through a nasty injury and did everything that was asked of him without a word of complaint. When I asked him to play he was prepared to take painkilling injections and do whatever it took to play for the club and for me that is the definition of professionalism and a guy with an appetite for the game.”

Murray, who confirmed he is now injury-free said he was “really pleased” to have signed back with the club.
