685 Matt Edeson

Biography

Beverley born and North Barnsholme raised striker Edeson made City history in October 1992 when he made his debut as substitute against Fulham at Craven Cottage. This is because at 16 years and 60 days old, and having left Peronet Thompson High School just a few months ago, Edeson became the youngest player to appear in a league match for the Tigers. Over the next three seasons Matt learned his trade in the reserves and made a few more substitute appearances, but was unable to fulfil his early promise and left the club in May 1995, three months before his 19th birthday.

Edeson then dropped into the non-league scene and played for various clubs around the North. But his penchant for the livelier side of life, fuelled by earning reasonable money at a young age, caught up with Matt and he stopped playing in the early 2000s while still in his mid-20s. Subsequently he struggled with alcoholism and depression and is now active in local charities in Hull that help tackle these illnesses.
