Matthew Simpson

1973 - 2023

Over the weekend we learned of the sad passing of grassroots football volunteer Matthew Simpson.

Matt was well known throughout grassroots football in our county and played a crucial role in providing opportunities for young people to play football for a great number of years.

A champion of participation Matt served South Cave United for many years as a club official which included a spell as Chairman and was highly regarded for the time, effort, and dedication he offered the club. He also spent an incredible amount of time volunteering with South Cave Juniors and was renowned for his positivity and for creating a legacy that will continue to live on.

His affection for the game knew no bounds with him registered to play for South Cave Sporting Clubs Veterans side for the upcoming season.

Matt was also a respected teacher in our area with him working at South Hunsley School and Sixth Form whilst also serving as Secretary of East Riding Schools FA. A role which he took tremendous pleasure from.

Everyone at East Riding FA would like to offer our condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and team mates of Matthew Simpson.
