Wayne, Tyler and I had the pleasure of coaching Gideon during his time at Dunstable Town FC. He represented the Club at both U16's and U18's level. He was a funny and loving young man who always made sure you knew he was there. During his time at the Club he showed his versatility on the field by mastering many different positions and was the very essence of being a Team player.
Gideon was never shy about expressing himself which sometimes got him into trouble, but everything he said and did came straight from the heart. He showed great passion for the Club and had total respect for his fellow players and the coaching staff. He had so much to look forward to in life and we are all deeply saddened that he has been taken so young.
We will arrange a Charity Match to take place in his honour towards the end of the season and will be holding a Minute's Applause at our first home game to celebrate his life.
We pass on our condolences to Gideon's family and friends.
Cameron Jenkins, Wayne Upton, Tyler Dunnel and all at Dunstable Town FC.
