Alexandra Soccer & Community Association

Danny Murphy


Chester-born Danny Murphy came through the Academy ranks at Crewe Alexandra, scoring 33 goals in 151 starts before securing a dream move to his boyhood heroes Liverpool in the summer 1997 for a then record £3 million. He helped the Anfield club to success in the FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Cup, European Super Cup and Community Shield before moving on to Charlton in the summer of 2004.

Murphy was a regular in Sven Goran Eriksson’s squad in the build up to the 2002 World Cup Finals in Japan, only for a foot injury to rule him out at the last moment. Murphy has made nine appearances for England scoring his only goal in a friendly encounter against Paraguay at Anfield in April 2002. England won the game 4-1.
