Murphy joins the squad

Peter Murphy is the latest member of the 2015/16 Ayr United squad to sign a deal for the 2016/17 season in the Ladbrokes Championship.

Manager Ian McCall said :”We now have everyone tied up from last season that we really wanted and the focus now is on the new names we are looking to bring in.

I am absolutely delighted to have Peter signed up for this coming season as his quality and experience will be absolutely vital. For the large majority of last season Murph was the best player on the park and he keeps himself in such great condition that getting him signed up was a big priority.

Moving up a league and playing against a better standard of player will not phase Peter Murphy one bit, in fact it will absolutely bring out the best in him.”

Peter said :”Next season is going to be a completely different challenge for the club as we will be one of only two part time teams in the division. However, with the squad the manager already has from the players signed up from last season, the addition of Paul Cairney and a few others still to come then it its an exciting prospect. We will certainly be looking to cause a few surprises in the coming season.”
