Newcastle United: Magpies fans react to Daryl Murphy’s sensational finish vs Huddersfield - Newcastle United

Lots of Newcastle United fans reacted to a tweet from the club’s official Twitter account showing footage of Daryl Murphy’s stunning finish against Huddersfield to continue the St Patrick’s Day celebrations. 

Following a cross from Jonjo Shelvey into the box, Murphy took the ball away from the Terriers goalkeeper Danny Ward, and coolly slotted the ball past the helpless shot-stopper into the back of the net.

Rafa Benitez’s side went five points clear at the top of the Championship with the 3-1 win and gained promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The Irishman played in 18 matches in all competitions under the former Magpies boss, scoring 6 goals and creating 1 assist, before being sold to Nottingham Forest for £2.07m in July 2017 (Transfermarkt).

Murphy also won 32 caps and scored 3 goals for the Republic of Ireland. The centre-forward currently plies his trade with Bolton Wanderers in League One and he has bagged 8 goals in 24 games in the English third tier this campaign (Transfermarkt).

Many supporters shared their views on the 37-year-old’s short spell at St James’ Park online, with one fan describing him as a “sweet prince”.
