Former Yeovil Town midfielder Keiran Murtagh has signed a new contract with Conference National newcomers Macclesfield Town. The 23 year old has moved on a free transfer from Cambridge United after failing to break into the first team at the Abbey Stadium.
Macclesfield were relegated from the Football League at the end of last season, and Murtagh moves within that division after he made just seven appearances for Cambridge, spending the second half of the 2011-12 season on loan at Woking - his second spell with the Cards.
Despite being capped at Under-17 level for the Republic of Ireland, Murtagh has become a regular international player for Antigua and Barbuda, scoring his debut goal for his country against the US Virgin Islands last October. Last month saw him play in 2014 World Cup Qualifying matches against Jamaica and the USA, starting in both of the CONCACAF Third Round group games.
