Player Bio

Background: Pre-NMFC

Red Óg Murphy will be hoping to become the next Gaelic footballer to play in the AFL after signing with North Melbourne as a Category B rookie.

The young Sligo player trialled with the club in August of 2018, and impressed according to North’s GM of Football Cameron Joyce.

“Red was invited to Arden Street and we were really happy with his ability and character,” Joyce said.

In particular, Murphy’s running capacity stood out and his testing ranked in the top echelon of players at the club.

“We did a variety of tests with Red and he was exceptional,” Joyce added.

“We feel that he has the right foundations to enable him to have a real crack at playing in the AFL and we will give him every chance.”
