Matt joined Ponteland from the Newcastle University Staff in 2002, scoring 75 on debut for the 2XI against Newcastle City. Moved up to the 1XI for the 2004 season and remained a first choice despite irregular availability due to work commitments. He has kept wicket for both league sides.

Has so far twice reached the nineties for the first eleven without reaching the elusive 100. Started 2009 season in the 2XI due to inconsistent availability scoring 88 against Lanchester and then his maiden club century of 110 against Morpeth in consecutive innings before returning to the 1XI, finishing top run scorer for the side in just 9 innings.

Passed 1,000 runs for the 1st Eleven early in 2010 then in the fixture on 27th June against Ryton shared an opening partnership of 258 with Wayne Ritzema that was the highest for any wicket for the 1XI and the club.

Struggled in the 2012 season before returning to form in 2013, his six fifties and 459 runs for the season providing a platform for the 2XI's title win.
