What is Daryl Murphy up to these days after his exit from Nottingham Forest?

Published

on

Daryl Murphy spent two years at Nottingham Forest between 2016 and 2018, although they turned out to be two of his worst goalscoring seasons of his career.

Having joined following a brief spell for Newcastle in their promotion campaign in 2016/17, Murphy would find the net just 13 times in 60 appearances in all competitions at Forest.

The striker initially made a bright start to life at the City Ground, scoring in three of his first four outings for the Reds, but one goal in his final 17 matches that season was an extremely disappointing return for a man that had previously won the Golden Boot in the Championship.

Murphy’s second and final season on Trentside followed a similar pattern. He notched in four of his opening six games in 2018/19, but would only score only two more goals in his final 26 appearances in Forest colours, although one of those came in the thrilling 4-2 win over Leeds.

What year were Forest founded?

But what has Murphy been doing since his departure from Forest?

Ahead of last season, Murphy saw his contract terminated at the City Ground, and would join League One outfit Bolton on a one-year deal.

However, despite scoring eight times in 26 appearances, he couldn’t prevent the Whites from slipping into the fourth-tier for the first time for more than three decades.

In September, Murphy returned to Ireland and would re-join hometown club Waterford, although he hasn’t yet made his second debut for his new club.

The Republic of Ireland frontman has enjoyed a great career in the English game, but his two-year spell at Forest remains underwhelming.
