Matthew Etherington is left winger who signed for Stoke City in the January 2009 transfer window. Matthew has pace and creativity, while his ability to set up chances for his colleagues is invaluable. He has been a fixture in the side since he joined the club, although injury affected him in the closing stages of the 2010-11 season. Matthew was in scintillating form in the FA Cup semi-final thrashing of Bolton, scoring the opening goal with a superb shot from 25 yards out and then proceeding to tear apart the Wanderers? defence with a superb display of wing play. He began his career with Peterborough United before being snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur, but it was only after he moved on to West Ham in the summer of 2003 that he began to play regular first-team football. He made over 150 appearances for the Hammers before joining Stoke.
