Merstham Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Goalkeeper, Matte Pierson.
Matte boasts a season spent with Bedfont Sports last year where he was awarded player of the season by both management and his teammates. Matte has strong ties to Tmufc where he was brought in by manager Frank Wilson back in 2016.
Matte is a young, talented player, originally a trainee at Brentford and signed for Hampton & Richmond before Wilson took him on loan and then made the move permanent.
Everyone at Merstham welcomes Matte to the club.
Frank has this to say about signing Matte Pierson:
"I first came across Matte when Alan Dowson was Manager at Hampton & Richmond and I made some enquiries about him - he was a trainee at Brentford and Dowse spoke well of him. Matte had the potential back then and still does to play higher up the football pyramid but non league football at step 3 & 4 is helping Matte learn more and improve certain aspects of his game and I think having Andy Smith on board to work closely with Matte will be hugely beneficial. I expect that with another full season at step 4 last year and coming away with some personal accolades, Matte will relish the challenge of playing back in the Bostik Prem and he understands this is an important season for him."
Welcome to Merstham, Matte!
