Player of the Week: Sean Murphy

Gateshead College’s Sean Murphy is the latest winner of the Player of the Week award after his impressive display in Week 4.

Murphy netted 29 points to guide Gateshead to their second consecutive victory as they defeated Moulton College 86-63, on Wednesday.

“I’m glad to play well in the game and more importantly get the win – we are in good form at the minute and we need to make sure we continue in that fashion,” he said.

Gateshead’s Head Coach Ian Macleod added: “Sean is working hard on his game and his performances show that. He has had a great season so far for both Gateshead College and Newcastle Eagle au18, and I hope we can all maintain the high standard as the season progresses.”

Murphy and Gateshead return to action this week with a home game against the unbeaten Nottingham Academy..
