Murphy Injury Update

11 August 2015

Captain ruled out for 12 weeks.


Peter Murphy had a scan on his knee, which was injured in a challenge during the 8th minute of Morecambe’s opening League 2 match at Hartlepool on Saturday.

The scan showed a grade 3 tear to the MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) of the right knee. 

The knee will be braced for 6 weeks and a 6 week rehabilitation period will follow.

Murphy was named captain last week and the news means the influential midfielder is likely to be sidelined for the Shrimps until mid November.
