Our Story

MurdockSG was established by Colin Murdock in 2011, subsequently partnered by Jackie Evans – two football professionals with personal experience of the game in playing and coaching at the highest level.

Both Colin and Jackie began as scouted schoolboy players, and both worked their way up through the professional game, experiencing first-hand the highs, lows and pressures of football.

From starting with Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United at 17, Colin can claim over 400 senior appearances, including play-offs, cup finals and international games. Jackie joined Chelsea’s youth ranks at 15, pursuing a playing career and later coaching roles – culminating in becoming a coach and player mentor at Manchester United’s Academy.

In parallel with their football careers, Jackie and Colin also committed to academic studies. Colin qualified as a solicitor having completed his LLB Honours Degree and Postgraduate in Law (LPC) during his playing days. Jackie successfully completed a three year BSc Honours degree in Sports and Business Management.

It seemed that few intermediaries could offer personal experience of the professional game combined with the technical knowledge and know how required to maximise a player’s career and earnings.

Colin gained invaluable experience as a player whilst sitting as an elected member of the Professional Footballers’ Association Management Committee and post his playing days as a member and chairperson of various FA Judicial Panels, the National Anti-Doping Panel and Sports Resolutions UK.

Today, as MurdockSG continues to manage both experienced internationals and the brightest young prospects in the game, Colin, Jackie and their expert team are as committed as ever to putting clients’ interests and needs first.

The company has a recognised reputation for successful, bespoke player representation. It’s a consistent record of achievement that proves there’s no substitute for knowing how it feels to be a professional football player, along with having in-depth business and mentoring expertise.

MurdockSG provides the best, most supportive and intelligent ways for individuals to progress and thrive – both through playing days and over the longer term.

The guys at MurdockSG have navigated my senior career with creativity and class. They know football and business, so they’ve really added value to my contracts.
