Murphy and Whelan join the Gladiators from Chesterfield FC
Matlock Town is pleased to announce the signings of Irish duo nineteen year old forward Kallan Murphy and twenty year old midfielder Leigh Whelan from Chesterfield FC subject to FA and NPL approval.
Kallan moved to England to take part in Chesterfield FC's football and education programme and has featured for the Spireites U19's and U21's.
Leigh progressed through three teams in Ireland and made it to a League of Ireland team for the past two-and-a-half-years prior to joining Chesterfield FC and had a spell out on loan with Sheffield FC last season.
"Kallan Murphy and Leigh Whelan have come in from Chesterfield and have been great and I’d like to thank Neil Cluxton at Chesterfield for his help." said Manager Paul Phillips.
