Home sponsor: Northumbrian Water  Away sponsor:  Northumbrian Water

Debut: 2008-09

Position: Central midfield

Previous Senior clubs: Westerhope

How he signed for Green and Black: brought by Craig Allen after Westerhope folded.

Profile: Committed player with a good attitude, Matty quickly settled with the Green and Black after the demise of Westerhope.  Whole hearted midfield player with a great engine, an eye for goal who enjoys a tackle.   The first player in squad to secure home and away sponsorship. Matty has now firmly established himself as one of the first names on the 1st team teamsheet.

Personal comment: "Matty Aikin as Trigger like to call him, has wowed team members for his sophisticated look on the 1st team night out and even got mentioned in the same bracket as Dick van Dyke, but don’t let this cool persona fool you, he is Newcastle born and bred and you wouldn’t want him coming round to clean your chimneys any time soon."

Manager comment 2009-10:   Very hardworking utility player who can play in a number of positions.  Still only young and also has great potential.  Never lets the team down and always puts a shift in.”
