Cork City FC are delighted to announce the appointment of Danny Murphy as the new manager of our Women’s National League side.
Murphy has spent the last 6 years coaching in women’s football, most recently including two years as manager of Welling United, and he told CorkCityFC.ie: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be taking on this new role. Since retiring from playing, I have really enjoyed coaching and particularly enjoyed coaching in the women’s game. I have had a number of very constructive conversations with the club about the direction we want to go in; I believe there is huge potential in the players at the club and in the women’s game in general in Cork.”
“I want to build on the good work being done at underage level by the coaches that are already at the club. I am ambitious to succeed and I want to play my part in translating the good work being done at underage level into success at senior level. There are some very talented players at the club and I look forward to working with them to help them, and the team as a whole, to achieve their potential. I have a clear idea as to what I want to achieve, not just in the short-term but longer term also, and I cannot wait to get started.”
Cork City Chairman Declan Carey commented: “We are delighted to announce Danny as the new manager. Danny is, of course, well-known to City fans, but we have appointed him due to his knowledge of, and experience in, the women’s game.”
“We are ambitious to succeed across all areas of the club, and we believe that Danny has the calibre to help us achieve significant progress in the Women’s National League. He has outlined his vision for development and progression to us, and we were very impressed by that. We are committed to working with him to target the progress and improvements that we all desire.”
