John Purcell,Gary Walsh,Tim Murphy,Barry Glasgow and Steve Winter at the 2022 PPM Reunion
Pratten Park Magpies are saddened to advise that Tim Murphy passed away in his sleep overnight.
Timmy, a local Junior from Burwood United was graded with our Club in 1967 and went on to play 123 games in all Grades including 67 First Grade games during the years 1967 to 1971, and a further season in 1975. Tim spent 3 seasons with Balmain from 1972 to 74 as well as a final season with the North Sydney Bears in 1976.
It goes without saying that Tim was an exceptional footballer but also an absolute gentleman and friend to all of us.
He will be greatly missed at our Reunions and particularly on the Northern Beaches bus to and from the Reunions.
