Everyone at Inverness Caledonian Thistle were deeply saddened to hear the news of the untimely death of Matthew Armitage.

Matthew affectionately known around the club as “Matty” joined us in October 2011 as a Trainee Groundsman following a 6 month spell as part of a scheme which focussed on getting unemployed youngsters back into full time employment.  Having made such a good impression during that time he was offered a full-time role on its conclusion.

After joining the club Matty became an integral part of the grounds team, working closely with his mentor and colleague Tommy Cumming.  His passing will leave a large void to fill as he was such a lively and well liked member of the team here at Caley Thistle.

The thoughts of everyone associated with the club are with his family at this dreadfully difficult time for them.
