Wide Receiver

Paul Simpson played wide receiver for the Basildon Chiefs / Essex Spartans, dating back to the organisations days as a junior team in 1985.

Alongside his twin brother Chris, Paul was part of a formidable passing attack for both the Chiefs and the Spartans, and was a regular feature in the League's leading receivers.

Paul played the wide receiver position with great heart and determination, and was famed for his blocking skills as much as his dependable receiving skills and electrifying pace.

Paul decided to retire after the 2004 season, but still checks in on the Spartans from time to time.
