Sussex Cricket is deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Matthew Hobden.
Matthew was an exciting young cricketer with a big future ahead of him in the game. He was a fantastic individual who had progressed through Sussex’s Youth and Academy ranks, having been born locally in Eastbourne.
He made his first-class debut for Sussex in 2014 and had represented the county across all three formats over the past two seasons. He will be greatly missed.
Sussex would like to offer their deepest condolences to Matthew’s family and friends at this difficult time.
Players and staff will be offered as much support as is possible and we would like both Matthew’s family, and everyone connected with Sussex Cricket, to be respected with privacy at this time.
The club will make no further comment at this stage
