#77 Marcus Murdoch
The Solway Sharks are delighted to introduce a new face for the upcoming season in 20 year old forward Marcus Murdoch.
Marcus comes to the Sharks after spending his junior career with Kilmarnock where he has posted impressive numbers including 79 points from 30 games at u20 and SNL last season.
The Scotland international has been training with the Sharks and will bring size, speed, skill and an ability to put points on the board and we are delighted to be welcoming him here as a Solway Shark.
Head Coach Martin Grubb stated “Marcus is a good addition for us and fits in perfectly with the philosophy we have of developing young players and giving them an opportunity to reach the highest level they can. He’s skated with us for a while and I’ve watched him over the years and he will bring a great work rate and attitude to the group and his skill, speed and ability to score will definitely make sure he makes an impact in this team. I know he’s desperate to do well and I look forward to helping his progress and seeing him play for us”.
Murdoch commented “I’m grateful for the opportunity to sign for the sharks this season, I trained with them throughout the season last year and it really made a difference to my game. I look forward to playing my part in the team this season. It’s a new chapter for me and I’m looking forward to pulling on the sharks jersey and getting stuck in”.
Marcus will wear the number 77 shirt.
