The grandson of Herb Matthews, and son of the Herbie who won a Brownlow Medal at South Melbourne, played his junior football with Melbourne from 1959 and stepped up to the senior list in 1961.

He decided to follow in the footsteps of his family and leave for South midway through the 1964 season, potentially costing him a spot in the '64 premiership team.

Matthews represented the VFL in the 1967 "Football World Tour" to Ireland and the USA with the Galahs.

He played at South the end of 1969, but after undergoing off-season knee surgery was unable to win his place back and was cleared to VFA side Dandenong in late April 1970 where he remained through 1972.
