Career[edit]

Born in Jamaica,[3] Matt moved from Sutton Coldfield Town to Kidderminster Harriers in November 2010 on non-contract terms,[5][6] following a trial earlier in that month.[7] Matt signed a contract with Kidderminster in May 2011.[8] In March 2012 there were issues with Matt's work permit,[9] and he was granted a period of leave from the club.[10] Matt returned to first-team action in November 2012.[11] Matt won the Conference Premier Player of the Month Award in December 2012,[12] and he signed a new 18-month contract in January 2013.[13][14]

Fleetwood Town[edit]

Later that month, Fleetwood Town broke their club record transfer fee to sign Matt.[15][16] In November 2013 the club announced that Matt would be ruled out for a month with an ankle injury.[17]

Matt was part of Fleetwood's 2013–14 team that beat Burton Albion 1–0 in the 2014 Football League Two play-off Final at Wembley Stadium, seeing Fleetwood promoted into League One for the first time in their entire history.[18]

In August 2014 it was announced that Matt would miss the entire 2014–15 season due to injury.[19] In May 2015 it was announced that Matt would be offered a new contract by the club.[20]

He signed a two-month loan deal with Stevenage in November 2015.[21]

He signed a 28-day loan deal with Plymouth Argyle in March 2016.[22]

Blackpool[edit]

After his release by Fleetwood, Matt signed for Blackpool in June 2016.[23] Matt scored his first goal for Blackpool in an FA Cup tie against former club Kidderminster Harriers on 6 November 2016.[24]

After tearing his hamstring on 17 April 2017 in a 1–0 victory over Doncaster Rovers,[25] Matt missed the remainder of the 2016–17 season.[26] Blackpool eventually went on to beat Exeter City 2–1 in the 2017 EFL League Two play-off Final at Wembley Stadium, seeing Blackpool promoted back into League One after one season.[27]

On 29 August 2017, Matt joined League Two side Grimsby Town on loan until end of season.[28] He was released by Blackpool at the end of the 2017–18 season.[29]

Newport County[edit]

On 20 June 2018 he joined Newport County on a two-year contract.[30] He made his Newport debut in a 3–0 defeat at Mansfield Town on 4 August 2018,[31] scoring his first goal on 14 August 2018 in a 4-1 win versus Cambridge United in the EFL Cup.[31]
