Matty is our longest-serving player, with 2021-22 his 11th unbroken season in our colours. Signed in January 2012 from Horden CW Juniors, Matty quickly made a name for himself as a tough-tackling midfielder.
He was just 21 when named as Players’ Player of the Year in 2014-15, and the same season saw him nominated as Northern League Young Player of the Year for the second time.
Happiest in central midfield, where he never shirks a challenge, he’s also played at right-back and centre-back during his time at the club.
He was Players’ Player of the Year again in 2017-18 and a key part of that season’s Durham Challenge Cup-winning side.
Played eight of the nine games in our history-making FA Vase run, and was many people’s man of the match at Wembley. Approaching 350 appearances for the club, he’s a real fans’ favourite.
