Not only was Matt an incredibly hard working and very capable Chairman of the Sussex FA, he was a very very good man who always took the positives from any situation and was always there to help.

Matt also had a previous spell working for Worthing Football Club club as our Commercial Director and was regularly in touch and supportive of various club projects.

Club chairman Barry Hunter commented: “Matt was a friend of the club and a friend of mine”.

“He was a kind, selfless and determined person who would always look to help anyone in need. Matt was one of our own and came to watch a game at Woodside Road as recently as last month. He is going to be missed by everyone”.

The club will observe a minutes applause in Matt’s memory, at our last home game on Saturday 29th April.
