Player profile

Forward who averaged one goal in every three games throughout his career. Murdoch was a local boy who signed professional forms for his hometown club in May 1957 after joining as an amateur on 11 May 1955. He played in 15 of the last 18 League matches of the 1957/58 season, scoring five times, but was only called on twice more the following season. He also played twice for Liverpool in the FA Cup, scoring on both occasions; the only goal of the fifth round tie at Scunthorpe United on 15 February 1958 and the club’s consolation goal in a 2-1 sixth round defeat at Ewood Park, Blackburn two weeks later. Murdoch became a player for South Liverpool in 1965 and the club's player-manager in 1971, remaining at Holly Park until 1976.
