Matthew joined the Bannsiders in January 2021 from Linfield as Oran Kearney finally landed his signature. The Ballymena native burst on the scene as he became the youngest goalscorer for the Sky Blues at the age of 15, where he also won the County Antrim Shield. A move to Linfield would follow as Shevlin collected a Danske Bank Premiership winners’ medal. Matthew was the top goalscorer for Coleraine during the 2021/22 campaign and has really kicked on since arriving at The Showgrounds, including goals in Europe and the BetMcLean League Cup final. A strong campaign in 2022/23 saw the striker share the Golden Boot prize with Cliftonville’s Ronan Hale.
