You can take the Man out of Drogheda United, but not Drogheda United out of the Man.

Today being Hubert Murphy’s last day at the helm of Drogheda United, Our Chairperson Joanna Byrne has marked it by way of a presentation in recognition of his unwavering commitment throughout his tenure.

In a passionate write-up in our most recent matchday programme, Byrne also paid tribute to Hubert’s contribution to the Club.

“It’s fair to say the Chambers gain is indeed the Drogs loss. Hubert’s unwavering dedication to the Drogs in recent years has contributed in a major way to the ongoing development of the Club. He has been instrumental in guiding the Club through challenging periods and all the time maintaining a calm approach to the day-to-day running of Drogheda United.

He will go down in the history books for playing his part in the biggest transition the Club has ever experienced in our recent takeover.

That said, Hubert is also a lifelong fan and I know we will still see plenty of him and his family and I’ve no doubt he won’t be found wanting in continuing to support the Drog’s as we evolve even further.

Everybody at Drogheda United wishes Hubert and his new team great success.”
