Coaching Bio

Current member of the Brisbane Heat and QLD Bulls team. I am an experienced opening batter keen to help all age groups improve their technical skills, always looking to make training fun.

I was born in Middlesbrough, England and moved to Australia with my family. I first played for the Queensland Bulls in 2015 and the Brisbane Heat in 2017. I also play Country Cricket for Somerset County. I made my Test debut in 2016 against South Africa, scoring my first test century in my fourth Test match. I am looking forward to passing on my skills and experience to all cricketers, regardless of their skills, and striving to help them play beyond their current level. I can offer assistance in all areas of the game, however my specialty is batting, in particular opening or top order batting. I also bowl finger spin and field in the slips, both of which I can offer technical coaching. I love cricket and love seeing athletes play with a smile on their face.

Our 14yr old boy has had two sessions with Matt, and both have been fantastic - definitely exceeded our expectations. Matt’s coaching tips have really helped to improve our boys batting technique and - importantly - his confidence. We found Matt to be really friendly and easy to chat to. Overall an excellent experience - highly recommend.

My 14 year old son had a great session with Matt. He received some great tips and advice and some drills to take away. Matt was very friendly and welcoming, and my son loved just having a chat and engaging with him. Highly recommend!

Our session with Matt was fantastic. Having access to a professional athlete was such a buzz and super motivating for my son. Matt gave him some great tips and advice on how to improve his cricket. He was a lovely guy and made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed from the very beginning. For a cricket mad kid this is the ultimate experience.

Matt was a fun and technical coach. He has helped me learn the features of batting. I recommend coach renshaw because he gives you heaps of feedback and a few things to focus on in the future. Lots of practice before next session with coach Matt. Thanks Matt.
