Matty is a striker who signed his first professional contract with Rochdale during the summer of 2016.

The 19-year-old came through the ranks at the Crown Oil Arena and made his first team bow in the Checkatrade Trophy game at Hartlepool.

He marked the occasion with a debut goal, becoming Dale’s ninth-youngest goalscorer of all time in the process.

In November 2017, Matty made his first league start for the club and opened the scoring in Dale’s 2-1 defeat at Charlton.

He continued to make occasional appearances from the bench during the latter part of last season and penned a new two-year contract at the Crown Oil Arena in May 2018.
