Dan Murray commits to Cork City for 2013 season

The centre back has agreed to extend his stay at Turners Cross for the 2013 season after overcoming troublesome injury complaints
Airtricity Premier Division side Cork City have completed the re-signing Dan Murray ahead of the 2013 season.

The 30-year-old defender, who is in his second spell with the club, has agreed to re-join the Leesiders for the 2013 campaign and Cork City manager Tommy Dunne has revealed that he is 'thrilled' that the centre back has committed to the club.

"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," Dunne told the club's official website. "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.

"Dan's circumstances have changed and he is working now, but he is free from injury and he still has a lot to offer the club. I have no doubt that he will be putting every centre half that we have at the club under pressure for their place in the side.

"In fact the one thing he said to me when he was signing was that he is not here to make up the numbers and I don’t think you can ask for more than that from a man of his experience."

Speaking after signing his new deal, Murray explained that he is now over injury troubles and is 'pleased' to be making the commitment to the Rebel Army.

"Last season was disappointing as I didn’t play as much as I would have liked, but I am over the injury now and I am really pleased to be signing back with the club for the coming season," he said.
