Club Statement: Mick Murphy

AFC Telford United are extremely saddened with the sudden passing of Shropshire FA CEO & Market Drayton Chairman Mick Murphy .

The Football Club has had an excellent working relationship with Mick, The Shropshire FA & Market Drayton for many years with the club now hosting the Shropshire FA in the West Stand and with all the County Cup Finals being played at the New Bucks Head over the next few weeks.

The Bucks have also supported Market Drayton Town with pre-season friendlies over the years and this was often down to the warm hospitality that Mick and his club would provide us.

We would like to pass on our condolences and thoughts to all Mick’s family & friends and everyone at the Shropshire FA & Market Drayton Town at this very difficult time.

At the request of the Shropshire FA, AFC Telford United will continue to hold the County Cup finals as Mick would of wanted
