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.

Over the years, the New England Revolution have been one of Major League Soccer’s top drawing teams at home.

With only two home games left in the 2014 season, the Revs attendance is far ahead of 2013′s attendance figures.

Through 15 home games, the club has increased its attendance by 11.3 percent. The Revolution is averaging 15,178 fans at Gillette Stadium this season; that’s almost 2,000 fans per game ahead of the team’s average of 13,237 through 14 games last season.

During the 2014 season, New England claims the MLS’ fourth-highest attendance growth rate behind D.C. United (19.4%), San Jose (19.0%, which also includes a match at the 49ers’ Levi Stadium) and Toronto (16.9%) through the same amount of games a year ago.

On the season, the MLS is averaging a 1.8 percent growth in attendance through the same number of games.

During this past winter, fans, media and followers of the Columbus Crew were thinking this would be a rebuilding season with the team releasing and trading away so many veterans.

I guess the management knew what they were doing as the team is still an MLS Cup contender.

The Crew, the best second-half team in Major League Soccer this season, proved its resiliency again on Saturday night, overcoming a goal by Benny Feilhaber in the 45th minute of the first half and scored three of its own in the second half for a 3-1 victory over the New England Revolution at Crew Stadium.

The Crew (10-7-7, 37 points) remained on top of the Eastern Conference with the win, and improved to an impressive 2-0-4 record when trailing at the half this season.

Second-place Philadelphia (8-5-10, 34 points) played FC Dallas to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Crew and the Philadelphia Union will battle next Saturday, August 20 at Crew Stadium for first-place.

The Revs, a team the Crew used to have trouble with game-after-game in years past, dropped to 4-11-9.

An own goal off the shin of New England defender Kevin Alston in the 54th minute opened the Crew’s scoring.

Julius James earned his first goal of the season in the 75th minute on a header off a corner kick from Josh Gardner.

Emilio Renteria easily scored his fifth goal of the season in the 81st minute on an unmarked finish from six yards out after midfielder Robbie Rogers set up the goal.

GAME NOTES:

* The Crew are 7-1-4 at home this season.

* James’ goal was his first in Black & Gold and the fourth of his career.

* Dilly Duka made his first appearance since June 4. His assist was his third of the season.

* The game-tying goal own goal was the club’s 700th in franchise history. The Crew is the fourth MLS team to score 700 goals joining DC United, the LA Galaxy and FC Dallas.

* A nice crowd attended the game, 13,041 under partly cloudy skies and 83 degrees.
