I was born in Middlesbrough, England and moved to Australia with my family. I first played for the Queensland Bulls in 2015 and the Brisbane Heat in 2017. I also play Country Cricket for Somerset County. I made my Test debut in 2016 against South Africa, scoring my first test century in my fourth Test match.
I am looking forward to passing on my skills and experience to all cricketers, regardless of their skills, and striving to help them play beyond their current level. I can offer assistance in all areas of the game, however my specialty is batting, in particular opening or top order batting. I also bowl finger spin and field in the slips, both of which I can offer technical coaching. I love cricket and love seeing athletes play with a smile on their face.

Matt spent time with Hugo (age 16) in the nets giving him throwdowns and advice on his batting. He was friendly, relaxed and personable. As well as advice on batting technique, Matt shared how he made training sessions enjoyable for himself through training games and broader insights from his experience playing competitive cricket. A fun and informative coaching session.
Matt is an amazing person and coach, he went out of his way to make the session with our son possible. Our son’s batting confidence was down and after one session with Matt he was grinning ear to ear and the next day retired not out in his club game. Matt’s advice and tips on how to approach batting and cricket in general were invaluable – I would recommend Matt to anyone.
Our 14yr old boy has had two sessions with Matt, and both have been fantastic - definitely exceeded our expectations. Matt’s coaching tips have really helped to improve our boys batting technique and - importantly - his confidence. We found Matt to be really friendly and easy to chat to. Overall an excellent experience - highly recommend.
My 14 year old son had a great session with Matt. He received some great tips and advice and some drills to take away. Matt was very friendly and welcoming, and my son loved just having a chat and engaging with him. Highly recommend!
Our session with Matt was fantastic. Having access to a professional athlete was such a buzz and super motivating for my son. Matt gave him some great tips and advice on how to improve his cricket. He was a lovely guy and made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed from the very beginning. For a cricket mad kid this is the ultimate experience.
