Matthew "Matty" Ashurst (born 1 November 1989, in Wigan) is an English professional rugby league footballer for Wakefield Trinity (Heritage № 1350) of Super League.

Ashurst is predominantly a Second-row forward and signed for St. Helens from Wigan St Patrick's having previously played junior football for Chorley Panthers. Ashurst made his first-team début for St. Helens in a 38-12 win over Salford in round 5 of 2009's Super League XIV, where he came off the substitutes' bench. It turned out to be a break through year for the St Helens Academy product, with Ashusrt making 13 appearances for the first team, 10 of which came off the substitutes bench. He scored one try in these games. In 2010, his first team opportunities were far from halted, in fact enhanced thanks to injuries, and Ashurst managed to find the line much more than in his début year.[2]
