Matt Murray

2002-2010 appearances 100

England U21 5 caps

A Wolves goalkeeper whose career was severely curtailed by injury who had the promise to be England’s number one keeper

Matt Murray was set to be England’s goalkeeper for many years but his career was beset by injury.  Man-of-the-match in Wolves promotion play off final in 2003 not only saving a penalty but also preventing Paul Ince from scoring an own goal, Matt is a Wolves hero.  This was in his first full season as first choice goal keeper for Wolves.

In spite of his injuries he’s worked tirelessly for charity but was forced to announce his retirement in 2011.   Wolves immediately granted him a testimonial and Matt is continuing his super efforts for charity

Mat’s Testimonial Match was Sunday October 9th 2011 in aid of Matt’s charities.  Visit Matt’s testimonial site for details.  Click here http://www.mattmurraytestimonial.co.uk/events/matt-murray-wolves-xi-vs-all-stars- details from the site follow.

Matt was London Wolves Player of the Season 2006-7 and the trophy was shown in his trophy area in an interview with Midlands TV.

The match was a 7-2 win for the Wolves Allstars with anAde Akinbiyi Hat Trick, Mick McCarthy being cheered every time he touched the ball with Joleon back in a Wolves shirt partnering him in defence (sign him up!), TC back on the pitch, the Guvnor barking orders, Mickey Cameron on great runs, Denis Irwin still our best right back, Jackie Mac clearing off the line, Robbie D cutting in off the wing, Mark Edworthy towering in defence, Andy Sinton, and Mickey Gray gracing the pitch again, Ref Kevin Friend getting a round of applause, an outstanding performance from Adam Proudlock (and a goal), Stowelly back in goal, Tony Daley also scoring, and Matt Murray’s first ever goal at Molineux (he was dragged back on to take a penalty). The outstanding goal came from Nico Mirallegro – a cracking strike from the Hollyoaks and Doctors actor. Breen and Paul Butler took over the defence later, Nayls was all over the pitch, playing more like he had at Celtic Park than Molineux. Amongst the opposition, a great turnout of soap stars plus Dion Dublin, Steve Froggatt, Jordan Stewart and Ian Taylor, with Andy Cole up front. Some 7,800 were at Moli to say goodbye to a great guy.
