RIP Matthew Jewers

14th June 2022

Dear Grasshopper,

It is with great sadness that we heard yesterday of the sudden passing of Matthew Jewers at the age of 64. Matthew joined Grasshoppers from Richmond in the early 1980’s to join his brothers Tim and Andy who were already playing for us. Matt, who had played for Richmond 1st XV soon settled into our 1st XV at wing forward and became part of the 1982/83 team led by Mike Reilly. 

Matthew became one of many St Benedicts boys who played for Grasshoppers that included Tim and Andy Jewers, Simon and Tim Radcliffe, Mike Reilly, Greg Wilson, Pat Swift and Sean Kelly. Our thoughts at this sad time are very much with his partner, Pamela and also his fellow Old Boys to whom we send our heartfelt condolences.


We will of course inform you of the funeral arrangements when appropriate.
