Jon Simpson was a tall wingman recruited from Woodville in South Australia and given the number 43 guersey and played on the wing in the 1984 'Night' Quarter final against Melbourne at Waverley. He played 22 Reserve games for 4 goals during 1984 before returning to South Australia.

The tall free-wheeling Warriors wingman was three seasons into his 56 game/52 goal career when Carlton came knocking. He waited one more season under coach Blight, then tried his luck at Princes Park in 1984. Not known for his robust style, Simpson was unable to break into the Carlton side apart from one game in the mid-week night competition. After spending the whole season as a regular in the Blues Twos, Simpson returned to SA. Crossing Port Road in 1985, he togged up for Port Adelaide for four seasons, 61 games and 35 goals. - Footy Almanac.
