Matthew John Taylor (born 5 August 1999) is a Welsh first-class cricketer.[1][2][3][4][5]

Taylor was born in Wrexham in August 1999. He was educated at Bedford Modern School where he was Captain of the first XI.[6] While studying at Bedford, Taylor began playing minor counties cricket for Bedfordshire, making his debut at the age of 18 in the 2017 MCCA Knockout Trophy.[7] Up to and including the 2019 season, Taylor has also played Minor Counties Championship and Minor Counties T20 matches for Bedfordshire County Cricket Club where he was Vice Captain.[8][9][10][11]

From Bedford he went up to Oxford Brookes University and while studying there he coached the Ladies first XI and made two appearances in first-class cricket for Oxford MCCU against Middlesex and Hampshire in 2019.[6][12][13][14] He scored 101 runs in his two matches, with a high score of 61 not out against Middlesex,[15][16] which was the highest score by any of the 40 debutants in that round of matches.[17]
