Where did it all begin for Taylor?
Matty Taylor’s story is one that has occurred at remarkable pace with pundits around the country labelling him the ‘next Jamie Vardy.’
Now, what might sound a rather far fetched headline for those of you who don’t know Taylor’s rise to where he is now should cast an eye over his history.
His career began at Oxford United where he played just 7 times over a spell that ran from 2007 to 2009.
From there, he decided to drop down to Southern League South and West division side North Leigh to resurrect his career – he went on to score a remarkable 80 goals over two seasons.
He then began to push his career forward when he joined Forest Green Rovers in 2011, scoring 22 times for the Conference club. It was then that Rovers spotted Taylor and took him on after their relegation to the Conference.
