Matt joined the club in 2022 and has quickly become a key player in our men's first XI, bringing his strong defensive skills in both outdoor and indoor formats to the team. His path in hockey took a significant step in 2021 where he debuted in the England Hockey Premier League for Exeter University.

Before his arrival at East Grinstead, Matt was a member of the Great Britain Elite Development Programme and spent three years at the University of Birmingham. There, he led as the men's first team captain in both the BUCS Premier League and Division I North.

Away from the club Matt is a newly qualified PE teacher at Glyn School.
