Bert Murray

Albert George Murray (born 22 September 1942) played as a winger. He played more than 100 games in the Football League for each of his four clubs, Chelsea, Birmingham City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Peterborough United. He won six caps for England at under-23 level.

Bert started his career with Chelsea, and was an important figure in manager Tommy Docherty’s “Diamonds” side of the mid-1960s, which won the League Cup in 1965 and narrowly missed out on FA Cup and League success. He made 183 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 44 goals.

Bert, along with several teammates, fell out with Docherty and was transferred to Birmingham City in 1966, where he linked up with ex-Chelsea teammate, Barry Bridges. He later played for Brighton & Hove Albion and Peterborough United.

Bert played 102 matches for the Seagulls between 1971 and 1973 scoring 25 goals.

  1. Fingers crossed, on the rock and roll!

    Many thanks again for your comments, it is always great to get views, memories and perspectives 😊

  2. Nice that it happened like this. Against your old manager I mean. I read very little at the moment re: any other teams’ match reports and analysis. Bit busy to be honest. But, I took a look at this one. And it seems you have got into another gear after a few initial matches and are ready to rock and roll under his new management. All the best.
