Joelle Murray (born 7 November 1986) is a Scottish international footballer who plays as a midfielder for Hibernian in the Scottish Women's Premier League.


Murray grew up in Chirnside, Scotland, and started her career playing with local boys' clubs. At the age of 12, at which point mixed football is prohibited in Scotland, she joined the youth set-up at Hibernian Ladies. She progressed through the age groups and into the senior side, winning all domestic honours along the way and latterly being under-17 captain. [2] Murray made her UEFA Women's Cup debut in July 2004 against Rapide Wezemaal and has made six appearances in the competition to date. [3]

After being called up to the Scotland Under-17 squad in 2002, Murray came through the various age-group teams and made her full international debut against Belgium in August 2007. She scored her first international goal against Northern Ireland in a May 2009 challenge match. [1] [4]
