“To Matt, thinking of you mate. Be strong and take care.”
Bruce Reihana, Northampton Saints Rugby Player.

  Please pass on all our best wishes to Matthew and the rest of the family from everyone at Leicester Tigers."  
Gary Sherrard

"On behalf of everyone at Northampton Town Football Club, we would like to send our best wishes to Matthew for a speedy recovery. We wish him well and we look forward to welcoming Matthew down to a game at Sixfields as our guest when he feels well enough to attend.
"As a club we are pleased to be holding the samples day at the Crewe game. We would encourage everyone who can to visit the Study Centre when they come to the game and spend just a few moments to see if they could possibly be a match."
Ian Sampson, Manager Northampton Town Football Club.

“Matt’s story has touched everyone at the Saints, especially as we know how much he supports the club and what he has already gone through. I’m urging everyone to come to one of the clinics in November and December. As well as finding a possible match for Matt we could be helping lots of other people across the country who need similar treatment.”
Roger Wilson -  Northampton Saints and Ireland International Rugby Player.
"Hi Matt. Just a note from me and all the England cricket team here in South Africa to say that we have our fingers crossed for you mate. Stay positive and cheer us on, we'll be doing our best to put a smile on your face against the Proteas! Swanny"
Graeme Swann. England and Notts County Cricket Player.

“Matthew and I grew up in the same street in Northampton just three houses apart. Although he is younger, we both played ball games in that same street but his was a rugby ball and mine a football. We both went to the same junior school and secondary school and we even share the same name. Matthew is such a kind, intelligent and fun loving young man and so it is extremely important to me, personally, that he has all the support and help he deserves with his current illness. He desperately needs a compatible bone marrow donor and I would ask you please to support him by taking a simple saliva test to see if you are the one who may be able to help him.”
