Nanaimo's Reid Davidson

Directly from the Nanaimo United Facebook page:

It is with profound sadness that we share news of Reid's passing.

One of the kindest and most selfless people you could ever wish to meet has left us and we will forever miss him in our lives.

Reid has been a huge part of our club for several years where he brought genuine warmth and care as a valued member of staff as well as being a fierce competitor on the field. Reid played for VIU men's team and most recently captained our Div 2 men to the league title in February, scoring the penalty which clinched the league.

To Georgia and Reid's family and friends, we are so sorry for your loss and wishing you the strength to get through the tough times ahead.

RIP Reid Davidson ❤️ (1999-2023)

Reid was a great young man. A great person to deal with in matters concerning the League, and a leader on the pitch with the Nanaimo Div 2's.
We encourage our soccer family to go to his celebration of life on August 26 - at the VIU Gym, at 1 pm.
