It is with extreme sadness that we report the passing away of one of the clubs saviours, Mick Murphy, aged 77.

Along with Jim Collins and Neil Shuttleworth, Mick was part of the consortium which rescued the Huddersfield Rugby League club from liquidation in 1988 and went on to become it's chairman, overseeing the start of the club's revival in fortunes and appointing Alex Murphy as coach at Fartown.

Mick was a former player with Waterloo R.U, Leigh, Barrow, St Helens and Bradford and the Welsh national team, as well as spells in France and Australia.

He was made an Honorary life member of the club.

Thank You Mick, Fartown and the Giants will forever be in your debt.

All at the Huddersfield Giants Supporters Association would like to offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Mick at this sad time.

May you rest in peace.
Every penny we raise goes towards the Academy/youth development at the Giants so please support us and help us help the club

Our club owes a great debt to Mick and his fellow consortium members. We could never imagine in those days that we would end up where we are now. I have watched Rugby League all my life with the same friends since we were kids, we all would like to thank Mick for what he did for the club and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends R.I.P.
