Matthew Dimbylow (born 12 December 1970) is an English footballer who plays in defence for the England Cerebral Palsy National Team and the Great Britain Paralympic Football team. On his debut for England he was made captain.

Dimbylow competed for Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Paralympics as part of the 7-a-side football team for athletes with cerebral palsy. The British team finished in seventh position in the event.

Charity work

Dimbylow was asked to be an Ambassador for the charity Caudwell Children on his return from the Beijing Paralympics in September 2008, with his special focus on the charities Enable Sport Programme. As part of this, he will be looking to identify possible Paralympians of the future, and to provide them with the equipment to enable them to become future Paralympians. He has been joined as an ambassador by Lee Pearson, the nine-times Paralympic gold medallist and the actress Elizabeth Hurley.

He will shortly be launching a campaign to help the Paralympians raise vital funding for 2012 - Be Kind To. He hope that the nation will get behind the project and support him and the other athletes as they strive to compete at Sochi 2012.
