Very sad news this evening as we learnt of the passing of Ricky Murphy, a guy who has coached our goalkeepers and managed our reserve team in recent times.
Ricky left the Club for a while and was on the verge of returning last year when his illness took over. He was a lovely guy, always with time for a conversation and clearly popular with whoever he came into contact with.
Rick, who was only in his early 40s, leaves a young family. We will mark this news appropriately at tomorrow’s game and he will be very sadly missed.
