Midfielder Darren Murphy has rejoined Cobh Ramblers for the 2021 League of Ireland season after spending the last two years playing in the Munster Senior League with Ringmahon Rangers.
The hard tackling midfielder spent four seasons at the club between 2015 and 2018, making 61 first team appearances. His most recent achievement on the pitch was helping Ringmahon to the semi-finals of the 2019/20 FAI Intermediate Cup.
“I’m delighted to be back,” he told Cobh’s media team, “I’ve been out of the League of Ireland a year now and it’s great to be back and to get going again.
“I’m really happy that things are sorted now and we can look forward to the first game of the season in a few weeks. There’s a really good squad and we’ll be aiming to be right up there, in what’s going to be a very competitive league this year.”
The Ramblers first game of the season will be against Murphy’s former club Cork City on 26 March. He started out at the Rebel Army’s under-19 League and Cup double winning teams of 2011/2012 and 2012/13, playing alongside his current Cobh team mate John Kavanagh.
After making intermittent appearances in the Munster Senior Cup for the club, he broke into the first team in 2014, and helped John Caulfield’s side to finish runners up in the Premier Division.
