‘Legend’ Murfin leaves the Lions as they face road test

PAGHAM have paid tribute to striker Scott Murfin who has left the club for local rivals Chichester City after nearly a decade at Nyetimber Lane.

 

The former number nine’s appearances for the club have been limited in recent weeks after Dan Simmonds re-signed from Isthmian South side Shoreham.

Despite crossing over to their SCFL Premier rivals, club chairman Tony Shea described Murfin as a legend.

 

Paying tribute to the striker on Twitter, the club said: “We would like to thank Scott for everything that he has done for Pagham FC, and his special moments for us over the years.

 

“All the very best Scott and thank you.”

 

Murfin’s last goal for the club came a fortnight ago in the 6-1 home win against Eastbourne United.

 

Last week’s match against Newhaven was postponed early in the second half due to a floodlight failure after Callum Overton put them into a 1-0 lead.

 

The Lions return to action tomorrow, travelling to promotion challenging Saltdean United (3pm) before the rescheduled match at Newhaven on Tuesday (7.45pm).
