Time out with massimo murdocca
Before joining Brisbane Roar, Murdocca played for South Melbourne and Carlton SC in the now defunct National Soccer League, and for Fawkner Blues in the Victorian Premier League.
Murdocca had a hugely successful spell with the Roar, making 182 appearances and scoring four goals over eight seasons from 2005 to 2013.
After his release from Brisbane, Murdocca signed a two-year deal with Melbourne Heart. Murdocca played in all 27 games of the 2013–14 A-League season, as his side finished in bottom place. The following season, Murdocca's role was reduced, starting in just 7 games. Murdocca was released from the club at the end of the 2014-15 season.
In May 2015 Murdocca signed with Avondale. Murdocca made 11 appearances in the second half of the 2015 NPL Victoria season, scoring two goals as his side finished ninth.
In November 2015, Avondale confirmed that Murdocca had signed on for the 2016 NPL Victoria season. Murdocca made 24 appearances as Avondale finished one place higher than the 2015 season, in eighth.
Murdocca, made captain for the 2017 season, led Avondale to the club's first ever finals series, after making 27 appearances in their run to third place. However, Avondale went 2-1 down to Oakleigh Cannons FC in the elimination round. Murdocca was given the NPL Victoria Gold Medal at the end of season awards night.
Murdocca represented Australia in the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship.
Murdocca is widely known in the A-League for his high work rate and stamina. His low centre of gravity allows him to be quick and agile in his movements on the pitch.
