Revolution midfielder Clyde Simms retires due to kidney disease

Clyde Simms was in his prime at just 32 years of age when he retired from Major League Soccer recently.

He had a good reason too. His health!

The former midfielder of the New England Revolution decided to hang up the soccer cleats in early 2014 due to a battle with kidney disease.

Clyde’s disease – Focal Segmental Glomerlo-sclerosis (FSGS) – has now progressed to the point that he needs a kidney transplant.

The usual waiting time for a suitable match is about four years, and many people on the waiting list really don’t have that long before needing to go on dialysis, including Simms.

People interested in donating a kidney first need to contact a donation center and be tested. To be tested to see if you are a match to help Clyde, or any other person waiting for a kidney match, please contact the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Living Donor Program at (617) 643-7193.

Simms is a graduate of East Carolina University. While playing as a Pirate, in 72 games, he scored 7 goals and handed out 7 assists and was the team captain his final three seasons.

In the MLS, he played for D.C. United from 2005-2013 and with the Revolution in 2012 and 2013. He played for the U.S. National Team in 2005.

The 5’9 defensive midfielder was born in Jamestown, North Carolina.
