Between the years of 1999 and 2005, Taylor played as a goalkeeper for clubs such as Everton, Burscough, Rossendale United, Matlock Town, Hucknall Town and Halifax Town. He struggled to impress in this position before being converted to a centre back and won a move to Exeter City. At the club, he won the conference playoff final 1-0 and made 160 competitive appearances scoring 17 goals before moving on to Charlton Athletic in 2011.
He made 53 appearances for Charlton Athletic over the course of 2 seasons before joining Bradford City. He struggled to impress at Bradford as he spent the majority of his time out on loan at Colchester United. He then went on to play for Cheltenham Town and Newport County where he failed to impress at either club although was made Cheltenham Town captain during his stay at the club. In February 2016, Taylor was appointed player-coach of Bath City but only managed one season in the job.
In June 2018, Taylor was appointed Exeter City manager after taking over from Paul Tisdale. In Taylor’s opening season at the club, he managed to guide the club to a 9th place finish in the EFL League Two. He also took the club to two second round appearances in both the EFL Cup and EFL Trophy but he could only manage to make the first round of the FA Cup.
Next season, Exeter City will be going into their seventh consecutive season in the EFL League Two and the fans will be desperate to make the playoffs next season. Under able manager Matt Taylor, the club will believe they can achieve this goal in the upcoming campaign. Exeter City was the club where Matt Taylor spent the majority of his career and will want the club to grow under his management and will want to give the fans what they want. He’ll definitely be targeting EFL League One promotion in the next few years and it’ll definitely be achievable.
