The De La Salle Football Club sends its condolences to Mary Murphy and the Murphy family for the passing of Maurie.

Maurie was a member of our inaugural De La Salle team, and played 55 games between 1955 and 1959. He was an integral part of our 1955 premiership side, additionally claiming the Best & Fairest in that year.

Maurie was widely regarded for his legendary football talent. Named in the Centre in our 60th Anniversary team, he is regarded as one of the greats of our club.

The entire Blue & Gold Army extend their deepest sympathies to the Murphy family.
