Jack Murray was the focus of our next episode of Going Pro. Jack, who has spent the majority of his youth career in Dingwall sat down to talk about signing his first professional deal with Ross County.
On signing his deal Jack was both proud but equally excited by what lies ahead. He said “Its probably a dream come true for me to be honest. I have been with the club for 12 years and it has been great to work my way up through the levels.”
Jack joined fellow teammate Tom Kelly on the 1st Team’s pre-season trip to Holland. It was an experience that he both enjoyed and learned from. “It was a brilliant experience for us, its where we all want to be. It was a chance to see how the 1st team players work, and we can take things away from that.”
Going forward Jack hasn’t set any personal targets but just wants to push to the next level and challenge through improving and finding his consistency. “I haven’t really set any targets, no. Its about taking everyday as it comes really. I just want to keep pushing for that place in the 1st team and see where it goes from there.”
Jack, is currently coached by former player Richie Brittain and has been working with Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson over pre-season. Working with coaches that have formerly played for the club is something Jack thinks is important to his development. “It’s a great set up we have here now. Obviously, Richie, Stuart and Steven have their background in coaching youth so they know that process to stepping up and hopefully that will help us along the way.”
Everybody at Ross County wishes Jack continued success at our club.
