It is with great sadness that we have been informed of the passing of Edinburgh South 2005 player Joe Clapperton. Our thoughts are with all his family and friends at this difficult time. This includes his two younger brothers who are also at the club.
Joe joined the Edinburgh South Soccer School before progressing to 7-asides with the 2005 Vipers where he was voted player of the year. Joe was a very talented footballer and was extremely popular across the year groups at the club. In addition to his talent on the field, he was known for his character off it. Joe was one of the nicest and bravest kids that the Edinburgh South coaches had the pleasure of having at the club.
On behalf of everyone at SERYFA we send our sincerest condolences.
