Matthew is currently Old Melburnian Hockey Clubs’s oldest playing member. His longstanding career with the club started way back when in 1982 as a fresh faced 17 year old.

My first game for the Old Melburnians was in the winter of 1982.

Since then Matthew has racked up over 650 games for the club in both winter and summer seasons! As you would imagine, the length of his career has seen many highlights including fracturing his leg during the 1997 winter season yet still managing to take out the B&F and also managing to put the most goals in the back of the net. Another highlight included winning the premiership in the very last season that OMHC competed in a grass field competition.

A team highlight was winning the last ever grass premiership sometime in the early 90s, before the OMHC had to move with the times and switch to a synthetic pitch.

But Matthews greatest highlight was being a part of the history making 2016 season where all 3 OMHC teams took out the premiership! OMHC would like to thank Matthew for his services to the club as well as congratulate him on a stellar career that won’t be equalled for some time to come.
