Matt relishing USA trip after winning season ticket holder prize
Matt will be jetting out to Chicago with partner Lauren Phinnemore next week after scooping the stunning prize.
The couple from Shirley are relishing the opportunity to see Paul Lambert's team in action when they face MLS side Chicago Fire at Toyota Park.
Supporters who purchased or renewed their season ticket before the end of May were automatically entered into a draw to win the four-night trip to the Windy City with match tickets and spending money.
The draw took place on Monday and Matt admits he was shocked to find out he had won the star prize.
"I was absolutely shocked - I received the phone call and thought it was a wind-up," he said.
"I went to watch the team in Hamburg and Prague in the UEFA Cup a few years back but never anything like this.
"I can't wait to get out there, see Chicago as a place and see the boys in action.
"There is just a real buzz around the club at the moment because of the start of the Paul Lambert era. It is really exciting."
