Matt Green Career

Club career

LOL Green, a youth footballer from Bath, Somerset, was a participant in the Bristol City youth program, but the club decided he was too young to play professionally. Green, an England schoolboy international, moved to Cirencester Academy under the guidance of former Newport County and Welsh international player Steve Lowndes, who recommended him to Newport in the 2005 close season. In his first season as a pacey striker, he made a huge difference in his debut in the Newport County first team in all competitions. He was a part-time player at Newport and worked full-time at a nearby car auction warehouse before starting to draw attention.

Several organizations followed him while he played for Newport, including Bristol City, Reading, Stoke City, and Swansea City, but instead, Green joined Cardiff City for £10,000 with potential add-ons depending on appearances. Nathan Blake, Jason Bowen, and Damon Searle had all played for Cardiff at Newport, including Nathan Blake, Jason Bowen and Damon Searle. On Sunday, Green made his debut for his new club against Preston North End on February 23rd, making him a replacement for Michael Chopra in Cardiff's 4–1 home win. He made five more appearances, all as a replacement, until the end of the season. Green was included in a two-game pre-season tour of Portugal, where he appeared in both games, scoring in one. He also appeared in Cardiff's first-round League Cup victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Green signed a one-month loan contract with Darlington, a Division Two club. In the Football League Trophy, he made his Darlington debut against Leeds United on October 9th. He started the match on the bench but was forced to leave earlier than anticipated due to teammate Tommy Wright's injury. Leeds beat Leeds 1–0 as the ball came late in the game. He hit the post late in the game. After making five appearances in all Darlington competitions, he returned to Cardiff on Monday.

On November 22, he joined Oxford United on an emergency one-month loan and scored on his debut against Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday. He made two more appearances for Oxford during his loan tenure, an FA Cup draw at home to Southend United, and then in the Conference Premiership loss against Northwich Victoria, before suffering a fractured collarbone and returning to Cardiff for care.

On January 25, 2008, he returned to Oxford on loan until the end of the season. He scored twice in the 3–0 home victory overlimonium on February 9th and went on to make a total of 18 appearances before returning to Cardiff where he was released on his return.

Despite Oxford's insistence on a permanent contract and manager Darren Patterson's arguments that the player had verbally committed to sign on May 31st for conference rivals Torquay United. Green started the season on the bench for Torquay, making regular substitute appearances, and on September 23rd, he scored his first goal for the club against Forest Green Rovers. Torquay defeated Championship team Blackpool in the FA Cup third round on January 3, 2009, with he scoring his first goal of the season.

For the 2009–10 season, Green returned to Oxford on loan. He was named in the England C squad to face a Polish under-23 team in November but had to withdraw due to an ankle injury.

He helped Oxford finish third in the Conference by scoring ten goals. Oxford defeated York City 3–1 in the 2010 Conference Premier Play-off Final after a four-year absence, with Chris scoring the first goal at Wembley Stadium on May 16, 2010 as Oxford defeated York City 3–1 in the 2010 Conference Premier Play-off Final. On June 2, he agreed to a two-year deal with Oxford; the fee was undisclosed. He began on January 31st, 2011 and stayed on loan at Cheltenham Town until the end of the season.

Green will be joining Mansfield Town on loan until December 31 of the same year, according to fans' group The 12th Stag, with £2,000 donated towards the transfer. He was an immediate success, scoring 14 goals in 25 appearances, and he was signed to the club in 18 months beginning on January 1, 2012. In his first day as a permanent Mansfield player in a 2–2 away draw with York City, he scored 56 goals in 92 appearances for the club in the Conference.

Green completed a two-year deal with Birmingham City in May 2013. During a pre-season tour of Ireland, he scored his first goal against Shamrock Rovers, but was eventually disoriented, resulting in eight minutes of treatment before being stretchered off. In a 3–2 loss at Leicester City three weeks later, he made his competitive debut in a 1–0 loss at home to Watford on 3 August and his first competitive goal for the club. Birmingham defeated Swansea City 3-1 in the third round of the League Cup, with Green scoring their second goal, "a superb right-foot finish at the back post" from Mitch Hancox's cross. He started the next three games without scoring, but was then kicked out of the matchday squad after. Green suffered cruciate ligaments in preparation in early November and was forecast to miss the remainder of the season. His recovery was beset by challenges, but he finally recovered fitness toward the end of the 2014–15 season, making appearances for the development squad and scoring in the Birmingham Senior Cup final. When his deal came to an end, the club announced that he would be released.

Following his release by Birmingham, Green returned to Mansfield Town on May 22nd, 2015. Mansfield's hopes of promotion were saved after he scored a header against Carlisle United. This was Mansfield's last game. At the end of the 2016–17 season, he was released by Mansfield.

Green signed a two-year deal with Lincoln City, Nebraska City's newly promoted League Two team. On his first game for Lincoln, he scored his first goal for the club on his debut in a 2–2 draw with Wycombe Wanderers on the first day of the season. Green finished the season as Lincoln's top scorer with 17 goals from 56 appearances in all competitions, while his team advanced to the play-offs, where they lost to Exeter City on aggregate despite Green's energetic debut in the first leg and goal in the second. He scored three goals in the 2017 EFL Trophy Final and appeared almost every minute of the game, although he was forced to miss the game due to his injury early in the match. Lincoln defeated Shrewsbury Town 11-0. Green found himself out of the starting lineup after the club made John Akinde, a similar style of player, during their record-breaking signing in the close season. He had appeared in 19 league appearances by mid-December, of which 17 were from the bench.

On December 20, 2018, Lincoln accepted an undisclosed bid from National League Salford City, and Green signed a two-and-a-kind deal. Salford reached the Play-Offs with four goals from 21 appearances, but was disqualified in the club's last match of the season, so the club did not get promoted to the Football League. At the end of the season, he left the team.

Green joined Grimsby Town on a two-year deal on June 10, 2019. In a loss to Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup on September 25, Green scored Grimsby's only goal. A long ball snuffed out the Chelsea defense and Green scored a volley in the 19th minute to tie Chelsea 2–1 to Chelsea, who then went on to win 7–1.

Green had eight goals in all competitions over two seasons, but he was let go before his deal came to an end at the 2020–21 season.

In August 2021, Green signed for Linfield, a Northern Ireland Premiership club. Before his contract was terminated by mutual consent in late December, he scored five goals out of 17 appearances in all competitions.

Green, a former Gloucester City player from National League North, was signed on January 21, 2022.

Green lost a division to join Yate Town in Southern League Premier Division South on July 17-2022.
