Jy Simpkin Biography

Wednesday, 17 June 2020
North Melbourne midfield coach Jarred Moore says Jy Simpkin is determined to be one of the competition's elite.

"A couple of years ago he took it on and decided he really wanted to invest and spend plenty of time at the footy club. He's the first one there, going through the most amount of vision and doing the most amount of touch," Moore said.

"He wants to get everything out of himself and be one of the best players in the competition. That's without any arrogance at all, he's a really respectful kid. But he's certainly made it known that he wants to be one of the best players in the competition."

Thursday, 6 February 2020
Jack Ziebell will lead North Melbourne as captain again in 2020, with a leadership group that has doubled in size.

Ben Cunnington, Trent Dumont, Jasper Pittard and youngster Jy Simpkin have been promoted to the eight-man contingent ahead of Rhyce Shaw's first full season in charge.

Jamie Macmillan has retained his place, while Shaun Higgins has been elevated to vice-captain alongside 2019 deputy Robbie Tarrant.

"I reckon it's a really really good group in terms of its diversity," Roos coach Rhyce Shaw said.

"We've got guys that have been there for a period of time and a great crop of first-timers in Trent, Jy, Ben and Jasper who have all put in some real work to better themselves as players, teammates and people."

Monday, 5 March 2018
Jy Simpkin acknowledges he was "very lucky" to dodge serious injury when he walked in front of a motorcyclist after a late night out.

The incident occurred just over two weeks ago when Simpkin was walking home following a night of drinking. Without looking, he stepped out on to a road in West Melbourne and into the path of an oncoming motorbike.

Fortunately, the motorcyclist was not badly hurt and Simpkin suffered only a minor ankle injury.

"I'm very lucky to even still be here talking and even walking. For me to have been able to walk out of the hospital and play footy again two weeks later, I'm very lucky and grateful," Simpkin said.

"I was really embarrassed about what happened; being out at that time of night with the season just around the corner and having had a few drinks.

"I've let everyone down within the footy club and outside of the footy club all my teammates, coaches, the fans, staff, everyone involved. I just hope I can gain back everyone's respect and have everyone back on good terms."

Tuesday, 20 February 2018
Jy simpkin is injured in an accidental collision with a motorcyclist that has prompted the second-year Kangaroo to impose an alcohol ban on himself for the rest of the 2018 season.

Simpkin will miss up to four weeks after he injured his ankle stepping into the path of a motorcyclist while crossing the road in West Melbourne early on Sunday morning.

The 19-year-old had been drinking before the incident and the police have indicated he will be fined for being drunk in a public place and for crossing the road on a red light.

"He had been drinking and unfortunately, he wasn't as alert to his surroundings and as careful as he should have been," North football manager Cameron Joyce said.

"Jy didn't see the motorcyclist and stepped out in front of him and the accidental collision occurred. He is very lucky no one was more seriously hurt."

Wednesday, 15 November 2017
Jy Simpkin will wear Lindsay Thomas' No.12 jumper in 2018 for the Kangaroos.

Having been released from his contract at the Kangaroos, Thomas joked that Simpkin had forced him out of the club.

"The kid's so talented and he's knocked me off my perch and put me out of a job, but it's good. I'm super proud to see his development over the last 12 months," Thomas said.

"I hope he can have a long career and do well. It's going to be good to see Jy wearing the No.12."

Monday, 15 May 2017
Jy Simpkin will be sidelined for up to six weeks after suffering a shoulder injury against Sydney.

"Jy saw a specialist this morning and it was decided that surgery was the best option to repair the joint," North Melbourne doctor Peter Baquie said.

Friday, 21 April 2017
Jy Simpkin's whirlwind start to his AFL career has continued with the exciting North Melbourne forward signing a two-year contract with the club.

Simpkin has played three games so far in his debut season and impressed enough for the Roos to lock him in until at least the end of 2020.

"I love being at the club and it's where I want to stay for my career, so I was stoked to have that and sign to the end of 2020, which is awesome," Simpkin said.

"I hope I can stay there for as long as I can and help the club towards as much success as possible."

Monday, 20 March 2017
Jy Simpkin is poised to debut for North Melbourne in their 2017 season opener against West Coast at Etihad Stadium.

"Jy has made a really impressive start," Kangaroos coach Brad Scott said.

"We were talking about him today at match committee and it's really unusual to see a young player who's got genuine outside class but also has a terrific work rate, unbelievable courage and is genuinely tough and all those things sum up Jy."

Friday, 25 November 2016
North Melbourne select Jy Simpkin with pick No.12 in the 2016 National Draft.

"I see him starting out as a mid/forward but we think he's got the capacity to come up to a wing and midfield," North recruitment manager Bryce Lewis said

"He played very little this year because of the broken leg (he suffered in April) but if you track his 17-year-old year amongst his peers he was right up there.

"He certainly does provide an X-factor, plays with a lot of energy, and is very clever and dangerous around goal."
