After many weeks of discussions between the club, Joe Murphy and his representatives, we are delighted to announce that the popular Dublin born 'keeper, has put pen to paper on a 12-month contract with Bury Football Club.

A player with vast experience behind him, Joe has made over 530 appearances for nine clubs since his career began back in 1998 with Tranmere Rovers.  Since leaving Prenton Park, Joe has gone onto play for such clubs as West Bromwich Albion, Walsall, Sunderland, Scunthorpe United, Coventry City and Huddersfield Town.

Speaking on Thursday, manager Lee Clark said: “I am delighted to have secured the services of Joe Murphy for next season on a permanent basis. He has been an impressive performer since I arrived at the club in February and, coupled with his attitude, desire and winning mentality, it was important we secured his services as soon as possible.

“Any successful team has a strong spine so to get this signing done makes me very happy, and I am looking forward to continue to work with Joe"
