Matthew Paul Hewlett (born 25 February 1976 in Bristol) is an English professional football midfielder.

Career[edit]

He began his career as trainee with his local side Bristol City, turning professional in August 1993. He joined Burnley on loan in November 1998, playing three times in a short three week spell. He left Ashton Gate in July 2000, joining local rivals Swindon Town on a free transfer. He became the club captain at Swindon, before spending time out with a knee injury.

In July 2005 he moved to Torquay United, again on a free transfer.[1] However, he struggled to establish himself fully at Plainmoor, mainly due to spending a long time out of the side with a serious back injury, which eventually forced his retirement on 2 February 2007.

On 29 September 2007 Hewlett played for Tiverton Town in their friendly against Buckland Athletic, after which Tiverton manager Martyn Rogers stated he was keen to sign Hewlett.[2] Rogers managed to sign Hewlett on 18 October along with another player, Radley Veale.
