Mathew James "Matty" Robson (born 23 January 1985 in Coxhoe, County Durham) is a professional footballer who currently plays as a left winger or as a left back for Carlisle United in League One. Due to a formation change from boss Greg Abbott, Robson has struggled to hold down a 1st team place throughout the 2010/2011 season, after he had a delightful 2009/10 season, running the show on the left wing.

Matty Robson came through Hartlepool’s Youth Development programme, following in the footsteps of Antony Sweeney, Jim Provett and Adam Boyd. While playing for the youth team, Matty Robson gained the reputation of being a quick and pacey winger with a keen eye for set pieces. However, he was promoted to the first team in order to fill Hartlepool’s “problem position” of left back by Neale Cooper. He scored on his debut in Hartlepool’s first match of the 2003/04 campaign against Peterborough United. During that season Robson went on to make 26 league and cup appearances. The following season saw Matty Robson make even more appearances, participating 34 league and cup matches and scoring 3 goals. These appearances included the televised play-off final against Sheffield Wednesday.
