He played his school rugby at Ilkley Grammar School which has strong links to Ilkley Rugby and from there went on to representative rugby.

Outside of school and club Matt has played representative rugby both at Under 15 and Under 18 for Yorkshire.

Having played for Sale FC since the age of 18, Postlethwaite entered his fifth season at the National Leagues in 2019 and has also made a breakthrough to the Sale Sharks side, playing in three of the clubs Premiership Cup games that opened up in the 2019 season.
