Matthew James "Matt" Bloomfield (born 8 February 1984) is an English professional footballer currently playing as a midfielder for Wycombe Wanderers.

Born in Ipswich, Suffolk, Bloomfield started his career as a trainee with Ipswich Town in August 2001 and was at one point a player scouted by Newcastle United and an England under-19 international player. But with a plethora of midfielders at Portman Road, was released by manager Joe Royle to join Wycombe Wanderers on 22 December 2003, having appeared just once for Ipswich's first team.

Bloomfield's debut came in the 2 0 home defeat against Rushden & Diamonds on 28 December, and he scored his first goal for the club against Queens Park Rangers in March 2004.

In July 2008 Bloomfield finally signed a 2 year contract extension. Recovering from a long-term injury at the time, Wycombe had decided not to offer him a pay rise. Bloomfield finally signed after Wycombe's new manager Peter Taylor said he would look to get Bloomfield a better deal when he had returned to fitness and was back in the first team.

Bloomfield made his return to league football on 2 December, as part of a 4 0 win at home to Macclesfield Town.

At the end of season 2009/10 he featured heavily in the side that failed to keep Wycombe in League One. Despite this his performances persuaded manager Gary Waddock to further extend his contract until summer 2011. He has since kept his place in the team at the start of season 2010/11 scoring his first goal of the season against Accrington Stanley.
