Matty Simmonds

Matty was on the move during the winter of 2019 as he joined Bridgnorth from Wellington to play in the Birmingham League.

A top order right-hand batsman and off-spinner, Matty top scored for Shropshire during the first innings on his Championship debut against Wiltshire at Marlborough in the final match of the 2019 season.

Matty’s maiden half century for Shropshire came in June 2021, an unbeaten 58 against Staffordshire in the NCCA Trophy at Oswestry, as he shared an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership of 110 with David Laird.

He was rewarded with a chance to impress at first team level following some consistent performances for Shropshire’s Academy side.
