The 18-year-old, who was part of the Under-18 side last season, was initially told he would not be offered a contract at Glanford Park.

However, boss Alan Knill asked the midfielder to return for pre-season training, even handing him a squad number.

But Matthews has now been told he does not have a future with the League One club.

Knill told the club's official website: "We just felt it would have taken him too long to get into the first team.

"When we spoke to him last Friday we explained we don't think he is up to the level for when we need him."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
