Matt Finlay joined the club from Cogenhoe United at the end of January 2014. The 36-year-old goalkeeper joined the Cooks in August 2013 after playing in the Northern Premier League Division One South to help Stamford win promotion to step 3 in the 2012-13 season, joining the Daniels from Banbury United. He had previously played for Woodford United, helping the Reds win the UCL Premier Division title and then playing for them in the Southern League. He has also played for Raunds Town, Bedford Town, Daventry Town, Brackley Town, St Neots Town, Wellingborough Town and Oxford City. He made 13 appearances for the Diamonds in 2013/14, but became a mainstay of the side as they won the League and Cup double in 2014/15, appearing 46 times. After another successful season in 2015/16 he was named as fans’ player of the season as well as picking up the players’ player award. He continued to provide a solid base to the Diamonds defence in the 2016-17 season, picking up a player of the month award for his exploits in Diamonds early season cup fixtures.
