Matty Collins decided to leave Aberystwyth Town at the end of the 2012/13 season to 'seek a new challenge'.
Aberystwyth Town bolstered their options in midfield with the signing of Matty Collins from Neath in June 2012.
Collins started his career with Swindon Town but impressed scouts at Fulham in 2001 and moved to Craven Cottage for a fee in excess of £100,000. The midfielder was then sidelined for eighteen months with re-occurring hamstring injuries which hampered his chances of breaking into the first team at Fulham.
He then signed for Swansea City in on a free transfer in May 2007 on a two year deal, before spending a month on loan at Wrexham, where he made his debut against Shrewsbury Town. The Merthyr born midfielder started Swansea's first three game of their Championship campaign in the 2008/09 and was rewarded for his fine form with a call-up to John Toshack's team for the game against Georgia. On the 11th August 2010 Collins left the Swans in search of regular first team football.
After leaving the Liberty Stadium he then joined Pembrokeshire outfit Haverfordwest County for six months, before joining Neath to be re-united with his former Swansea teammates Lee Trundle and Kris O'Leary.
