The Sean Murphy Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to two youth players with the Surrey Football Club who exhibit a commitment to soccer as well as community involvement.

The Sean Murphy Memorial Scholarship was established in honour of Sean Murphy, whose life ended tragically on June 1, 2001, at the age of 20 as the result of a car accident.  He was dedicated to the sport and worked diligently to climb up the ranks of competitive soccer. SFC is the only club that Sean played for, from Minis to Premier.  Sean led by example, striving to be the best he could be on and off the soccer pitch. The scholarship seeks to support and encourage other loyal and dedicated SFC players to follow their dream.
