Young Budding Newcastle Star Gets New Long Term Contract

Newcastle’s 19-year-old Alex Murphy joined Newcastle United from Galway United in July 2022, almost two years ago and since then has been training with the Newcastle first team.

And news today that Newcastle have given Alex a new long-term contract.

Murphy seems to be the perfect player to be coached by Eddie Howe, since he takes everything in and the U19 Irish International is rapidly improving on Tyneside.

Alex made his Premier League debut last November in the 4-1 win over Chelsea and he made his second appearance in the 5-1 rout of Sheffield United earlier this year.

So he is slowly being introduced into the first team by head coach Eddie Howe.

This is what Eddie Howe has said about the player:

“I’m really pleased to see Alex sign a new long-term contract here.”

“It’s well deserved recognition for the work he’s put in over the course of the season.”

“He had a great pre-season in America and has gone from strength to strength since, earning himself a Premier League debut and a regular place in our matchday squads.”

“We rate Alex highly. He applies himself brilliantly every day and he knows if he continues working hard that further opportunities will come his way.”

And 6ft tall Murphy seemed delighted to be getting a new long-term deal at Newcastle:

“I’ve loved every minute since I first signed nearly two years ago.”

“I’ve been fortunate to work with some brilliant players and coaches – with both the Academy and the first team – and I’m really grateful for the opportunities.”

“It’s an exciting time to be a young player at this club.”

“We can all see there is a pathway from the number of players who have made their first-team debuts this season.”

“I just need to keep working hard and hopefully I can build on the progress I’ve made so far.”

Newcastle will need to keep bringing in top young players to the club like Alex and let Eddie Howe and his team develop them into first-team players who know exactly what’s required of them when wearing the Newcastle jersey.

So far so good for Alex Murphy.

    The 2 reps for Tosin Adarabioyo were in Newcastle Yesterday and also briefed he’s accepted the clubs offer. The same 2 reps had been in Newcastle on Thursday and Friday getting Trevan Sanusi’s pro deal wrapped up.

    Expect Trevan to Get involved in the squad for the last game of the season, if not he will certainly be involved early next season. Plitting out the pathway for these lads we bring in under the age of 21 is absolutely vital to the player, his family and lastly his reps. What we are offering players now is obviously a pathway but most critically a caring foundation for the young player to thrive and grow

    Ed was all set to close the blog down because of his illness but inadvertently paid for another year.

    Because of the very same illness I doubt if he feels any incentive to try and curtail the antics of the children abusing the blog.

    When the final payment expires the blog will probably sadly cease to be and the children will have to find somewhere else to play.

    Glad to see the blog meet up was a success..
    Well done to all involved..

    Seen some Everton fans are saying to go into administration now rather than next season.. as they have enough points to take the hit..

    Surely this can’t be right with only a week to go..?

    And as for Chelsea.. 🙄

    Onmeedson, we usually drive down to the south of France, but it’s my son’s fiftieth and he’s got a place in Spain, so we’re going to surprise him, after touring around,
    This is our last tour, we’re selling the camper after we return, I loved the motorhome, but find the camper to cramped, and I’m not fit enough at the moment. I’ll bet I will miss it when it’s gone, we’ve been all over Europe.
    My hands fine,

    The quicker everyone learns to ignore the troll the better. It might make you feel better sounding off to it but it doesn’t help the blog and it certainly won’t help it stop abusing you. We’ve asked Ed to remove it and he’s actually made a statement addressing the situation and asked us to stop complaining about it. Like it or not it’s here to stay so just ignore it.
