Lifelong Nottingham Forest supporter Matt Davey was given a chance to visit The Nigel Doughty Academy on Tuesday morning as he spends his final weeks in England before relocating to Australia.Davey, who is a season ticket-holder in A Block, was given the opportunity to meet and have photographs with the Forest first-team players before he moves to Perth in a few weeks’ time to pursue his career as a DJ.
After spending time chatting with the likes of Andy Reid and Chris Cohen about his new venture, Matt revealed that he has already performed in front of 10,000-strong sell-out crowds in Malaysia and that he is aiming to improve on that in Australia.
Matt lists his favourite Reds moments as Radi Majewski’s debut goal against Derby, the Pole’s screamer against West Brom in 2010 and Dexter Blackstock’s famous winner over Bristol City and admits that it will be exceptionally difficult to leave his beloved club behind.
He said: “Forest has been a big part of my life ever since I was young and I’m going to miss the club immensely. I’d love to have pulled on the red shirt one day but I think I’ll leave that to Reidy, he has a better chance of scoring goals than I do.”
Everyone at Nottingham Forest would like to wish Matt the very best for the future and hope to see him back at The City Ground for a game in the coming years.
