Biography:
Mat was a mainstay of the team for many years, and one of our most reliable players, both on game day and at training. Matt played a number of positions during his time at the Exiles, starting at running back, moving to linebacker, and then settling at safety. His career stats speak for themselves!
Mat was also an integral part on the club committee for many years setting the building blocks to helping the club become what it is today.
Mat is now a regular at Exile home games, along with his wife Sarah and daughter Charlotte, who have become as much a part of the club as Mat himself.
