Matthew has played since age 5 for Billingham coyotes and worked through the age groups, until he reached the Billingham Bombers junior club. He then stopped playing at age 16, due to the refurbishment of the Billingham Forum. During this time Matthew went to University, so his break lasted longer than intended. In 2013 Matthew decided to put the skates back on, and signed for the Cleveland Comets.
