Shildon AFC are delighted that Centre Forward Matthew Waters has today completed his transfer from Washington FC.

The 23-year-old can lead the line providing goals and assists, graduated through the ranks up to the Under 23’s at Middlesbrough before moving to Whitby Town. He is technically gifted with a wonderful first touch which can create opportunities for him and teammates. Matty can create something from nothing and can finish with either foot and is great in the air.

Speaking to the website Matthew said “I am buzzing to have signed for Shildon and can’t wait to get started. I’m really excited by the ambition of the Club and manager and hope I can contribute to this by scoring plenty of goals.”

Shildon manager Daniel Moore added “I am delighted to have signed Matty. We have done our homework on him and he also comes with a good pedigree and upbringing in football through Middlesbrough’s Academy. At 23 he still has the best years ahead of him and hopefully, he can thrive within the squad we have and be an asset to the club going forward.”

Welcome to the club, Matty.
