Matt Oakley

Matthew "Matt" Oakley (born 17 August 1977) is an English footballer who plays for Exeter City as a midfielder. His last club was the Football League Championship side Leicester City where he was captain from 2008 to 2011. He had previously played for Southampton and Derby County.

Oakley played for Southampton in the 2003 FA Cup final against Arsenal, finishing as runners-up. However, injury proneness nearly cost him two years of football, and he left the club after being offered only a one-year contract. At Derby County, he captained the club to promotion via the Championship play-offs in 2007. After one-and-a-half years at Pride Park, Oakley signed for Leicester City, but could not prevent their relegation to League One. He enjoyed an injury free season when he captained the team to promotion as league winners at the first attempt.

Famous quotes containing the words oakley and/or matt:

    Men are the enemies of women. Promising sublime intimacy, unequalled passion, amazing security and grace, they nevertheless exploit and injure in a myriad subtle ways. Without men the world would be a better place: softer, kinder, more loving; calmer, quieter, more humane.
    —Ann Oakley (b. 1944)

    I’ve got to go. That’s one of the penalties of being a doctor. I never seem to finish a conversation.
    Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Dr. Matt Hastings (John Agar)
