Matthews only joined Sirius in 2022, previously with Varberg, also in Sweden’s Allsvenkan, where he played with South African teammates such as Luke Le Roux and Keanan Ayer, among others.

The Hanover Park-born midfielder, who is as good as a winger ten, left South Africa in 2018 to join Borussia Dortmund. due to registration problems, his stay in Germany was short and he was loaned out to Dutch and Swedish clubs.

However, it was in Varberg where Matthews began to make a splash, leading to his move to Sirius.
