Matthew Carr (born 29 December 1978) is an Australian rules footballer who played for Fremantle and St Kilda in the Australian Football League (AFL). He played as a half-back flanker and began his football career at East Fremantle. Matthew is the brother of Josh Carr, who also played for Fremantle and they both attended Corpus Christi College in Bateman, Western Australia.

St. Kilda Career

Matthew was drafted by the The Saints after previously being drafted by Collingwood in the 1995 draft. 1998 Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (St Kilda)

Fremantle career

Was traded to Fremantle at 2000 AFL Draft by St Kilda in exchange for Craig Callaghan. Played 21 games in Fremantle disastrous 2001 season. He played every game in 2002 and after an excellent 2003, in which he was sixth in the best and fairest, his 2004 season was severely disrupted by injury. An ankle problem early in the season and a broken leg later saw Carr restricted to just 11 games.

Matthew's 2005 was also affected by injury, he had been averaging more than 25 disposals per match before the Rd 9 match against Hawthorn. Carr was only able to manage 14 disposals while apparently under duress against Hawthorn. He returned for the Rd 18 clash against Collingwood but did little in the last 4 games of the season.

From 2006 season, Matthew was generally used in a utility/tagging role, often given the assignment of playing against the opposition's best midfield player. He was generally very effective in that role and finished the 2006 season having played every game for the Dockers including three appearances in the 2006 finals series. However, throughout 2006 and 2007 season injuries and fitness concerns continued to hamper his game and, although a serviceable player, he never returned to his earlier form.

Carr played four games in the 2008 season before announced his retirement on 19 May 2008. His last game was played against the Adelaide Crows at Aamii Stadium on 19 April 2008.
