Murray Makes Bournemouth Move

1 September 2015

Glenn Murray has joined AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee, ending his four year stint with Crystal Palace.

The striker moves to the Vitality Stadium having scored 46 goals in 127 games for the Eagles and playing a major part in their recent history.

The 31-year-old joined Palace on a free transfer in May 2011 after leaving Brighton and Hove Albion and would score seven times in 43 outings in his first campaign, including a memorable winner against Manchester United in the League Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford.

He further endeared himself to the Eagles fans by scoring 30 league goals the following campaign to help the club win promotion to the Premier League, although he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in the play-offs and would miss the Wembley win and the majority of the subsequent season.

He returned in February 2014 and scored his maiden goal in the top-flight at Swansea City, but after finding first-team opportunities limited he was allowed to spend some time on loan at Reading last season.

However he returned upon Alan Pardew’s installation as manager and would hit seven league goals last season to help guide the club to a top-half finish, and scored his final Palace goal against Shrewsbury Town last week.

The club would like to put on record their thanks to Glenn for all his efforts over the past four years and wish him all the best in his future.
