Coaching Bio

Current member of the Brisbane Heat and QLD Bulls team. I am an experienced opening batter keen to help all age groups improve their technical skills, always looking to make training fun.

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. *I am currently unavailable for coaching until July 2024. Please contact PlayBook to join my waitlist.*

My 8 year old son had a one on one training session with Matt. My son was very shy, but Matt was patient and considerate of this. He gave some great tips to which my son has put into practice straight away in the backyard. We will definitely book another session with Matt. I highly recommend booking a session.

Coach Matthew was an amazing coach for a very grateful 11 yo. My 14yo was too shy to play but Matthew made the session so friendly and helpful. He was such a patient and down to earth coach and we look forward to another session once my son demonstrates the learnings next season. Thanks for such a fantastic experience!

Just want to say thanks to Matt for his coaching session with my husband (plays for fun). He was lovely and really helped my husband’s technique. I’m sure it will make it more enjoyable for Josh to bat. Good luck in NZ and England!

Matt was an unreal coach. He helped improve my sons batting in 45 minutes. He made it fun and Connor took away some great tips to improve his game. Would definitely recommend 👍

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.
