2. Matt Ladell


Position – Right Back
DOB – 26/3/1996
Debut v Barnsley September 2013

Matt is another of the players who is ridiculously close to being younger than WIFC itself – he was a mere 14 months old when the club started. Despite this, he’s been welcomed into the fold along with his Dad, Jerry and has improved vastly since his debut, winning his first MOM award at Gillingham during 2014/15. While at Nottingham Uni, Matt made a useful start to his stint with the WIFC pikey student mantle, eating a load of sauces to win some loose change in a pub before the Charlton game.
