Club Statement: Karly Akehurst

Whitehawk Football Club is deeply saddened to learn the passing of former player, Karly Akehurst.

A key player for the Hawks in the early 2010s, Akehurst would touch the hearts of many in a prolific career that saw him play for many in the Sussex non-league scene. 

Returning briefly for pre-season at the start of last season, the thoughts of everyone connected to Whitehawk are with Karly’s family and loved ones at this incredibly sad time.

A huge part of Shaun Saunders’ success when the pair were at Haywards Heath Town, Saunders offered his condolences, “I was truly devastated to hear the news. Like many others I know the family very well, and have been blessed to have had a special relationship with Karly for many years. Truly a special man and we will miss him very much. I know what the family are going through now and we hold them all in our thoughts and prayers.”

Rest in peace, Karly.
