Bio:

Jamie Murphy has been with Motherwell since Under 13s, working his way into the first team without looking back. He has represented Scotland at Under 16s, 17s and latterly coming into his own with the 21s, firing five goals in their latest qualifying campaign. He is now a mainstay in the Motherwell first team and at the tender age of 21, has already netted six European goals - an all time club record. 
 
Now he answers five questions on his youth career for YFS...
 


1. Which clubs did you play for in your youth career?
Westwood Rovers, Drumchapel Thistle, Clyde then joined Motherwell at under 13s
 
2. Who were the best players you played with and against during your youth career?
Played with Ross Forbes throughout my time at Motherwell and played against Barry 'Banana' Bannan when he was with Kenzie at the time.
 
3. Who were your role models as a young player?
Used to love watching both Henry and Bergkamp at Arsenal
 
4. Who was your favourite coach at youth level?
Every coach was great but Graham Ogg and Chris McCart probably helped me the most.
 
5. If you had one piece of advice to today’s generation of youth football players, what would it be?
To play whenever you get a chance, after school, weekends, whenever you have free time. The more practice the better chance you have.
