Matthew Dea Biography

Sunday, 31 January 2016
Essendon recruit Matt Dea says he has much to offer at the elite level after he was offered a second chance by the Bombers.

Dea failed to play a senior game in 2015 but won the Tigers' VFL best and fairest, averaging 20 possessions a game.

"I feel like I was playing some good footy last year, it was unfortunate to be let go by the Tigers," he said.

"I definitely feel Iíve got a lot to offer, and Iím keen to keep that going here.

"Iíll just be putting my best foot forward and trying to get around the boys as much as I can and just be ready to go."

Wednesday, 27 January 2016
Former Richmond defender Matt Dea has earned another AFL chance, signing with Essendon as a top-up player for 2016.

Dea, who won the Tigers' VFL best and fairest last season, put pen to paper on Thursday, potentially extending his 31-game career after the Tigers delisted him at the end of last season.

Tuesday, 27 October 2015
Winning Richmond's VFL team's best and fairest this year hasn't been enough for Matt Dea to earn another AFL contract, with the defender delisted by the Tigers along with Nathan Gordon.
Tuesday, 14 October 2014
Richmond has re-signed six players, including versatile defender Jake Batchelor and Ricky Petterd.

Batchelor has inked a deal that will keep him at Punt Rd until at least the end of 2016, while Matt Dea, Matt McDonough, Todd Elton and Petterd have also put pen to paper.

Former Port Adelaide midfielder Matt Thomas has re-signed as a rookie-listed player for a further year as well.

Thursday, 8 March 2012
The injuries are over and Matt Dea is now aiming to play every game for Richmond after playing four games last year.

"Those four games gave me another little taste. I couldn't wait for the next season," Dea said.

"I'm confident my body will hold up. It's just a matter of whether the form holds up."

Sunday, 29 November 2009
Richmond draftee Matt Dea, taken with pick No. 44 in the 2009 NAB AFL draft, has only recently made the switch from basketball to football.

"I played basketball, and made the switch to footy late this year, and I guess it's paid off," he said.

"I only played three TAC Cup games this year, but that was good experience - so not too many, not as many as the other boys, but hopefully it won't show.

"I just started playing with the school side and started really enjoying it, and then the guys at the (Ballarat) Rebels started saying I should have a real crack, and here we are."
