Matthew Mayora (born 10 March 1986 in Sydney) is an Australian footballer who plays for Mounties Wanderers in the National Premier Leagues NSW 2.

Club career[edit]

He was crowned the 2009 NSWPL Golden Boot winner with a haul of 15 goals in 20 matches[1] by Sydney Olympic[2]

On 13 August 2009 Mayora signed a six-week injury cover contract with Perth Glory after impressing in a trial.[3][4] On 16 August 2009 he made his A-League debut for Glory against Wellington Phoenix, coming on in the 88th minute.[5] It was reported he would sign with Indonesian Super League club Persipura Jayapura on 15 September, cutting short his loan to Perth Glory.[6] On 27 October it was decided by the Indonesian club, that he was surplus to requirements and was dropped from his 1-Year contract.[7] He failed to impress several clubs in some trial sessions during pre-season of Indonesian Super League 2009/2010 with Persipura Jayapura who he played a full game for in a cup match. On 11 February 2010 announced his return to his former club Sydney Olympic.[8] After reterning to Olympic, Mayora went to Uruguay and trialled for an unnamed club, who offered him a contract, however due to personal reasons he declined.

According to the Fijiian local news Mayora signed for NFL club Lautoka F.C..[9] Mayora made his debut for the club in the 2010-11 OFC Champions League matchday one game against Koloale FC Honiara and scored both goals in their 2–1 victory.[10]

Returning from Fiji, Mayora signed on with NSW Premier League outfit Marconi Stallions for the 2011 NSW Premier League season[11] After a cautious start to the 2011 season, Mayora was sent off in the 0–0 draw with Bonnyrigg in Round 5.[12]

Mayora left Marconi half way through the 2011 NSW Premier League season, and once more went abroad in the hope of securing a professional contract.[13] It was announced that he had signed a contract with I-League club Southern Samity for the 2012 I-League 2nd Division.[14]

On 20 January Mayora signed for I-League side Shillong Lajong FC for the 2011–12 I League season.[15]

On 24 May Mayora made another return to Sydney Olympic for the 2012 season.[16]

Mayora moved out of Belmore for a third time at the end of the 2012 season, where he signed for Blacktown City.[17]

After a disappointing 2014 National Premier Leagues NSW single season at APIA Leichhardt, Mayora dropped a division, and signed for National Premier Leagues NSW 2 club Mounties Wanderers for the 2015 season.[18]

International career[edit]

However he has expressed interest in playing in Uruguay, as his cultural heritage is Uruguayan.[19]

Personal life[edit]

Mayora was born to Uruguayan Immigrants.[20]
