Two goals from Daryl Murphy, back on home soil, gave Ipswich Town a 2-0 victory over Shelbourne, in Dublin, on Saturday evening.

The Irishman, who has now penned a permanent deal with the Blues, opened the scoring within a minute of his introduction after the restart – the ball hitting the striker from keeper Ger Hanley’s clearance and going in.

He added a second from Byron Lawrence’s assist, six minutes later.

The game, minus the absent Mick McCarthy who was at a prior engagement, saw trialists Dean Gerken and Dan Seabourne play in the second half.

Gerken is a former Colchester and Bristol City goalkeeper, while defender Seaborne was released by Southampton in the summer.
