Matt's Story:

One of the brightest prospects to rise from the Exeter City academy, Matt Grimes made his debut back in August 2013 against AFC Wimbledon. In his first season he played 37 times and scored one goal. Impressive displays in the first half of the 2014/15 campaign, which saw him net four times, then caught the eye of Swansea City.

Matt then departed St James Park for the Liberty Stadium to continue his development. The midfielder then spent time on loan with the likes of Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Northampton Town. The 2018/19 season has seen Matt nail down a place in the Swansea first team under Graham Potter in the Championship.
