Exiles induct hall of fame members
The Kent Exiles are proud to announce that Mat Tompsett and Matt Duncan have become the newest inductees into the Kent Exiles Hall of Fame.
The Exiles Hall of Fame was devised by the club in 2005, with the aim of celebrating some of the great players and staff that the club has had in its long history in the British leagues.
Matt Duncan comes in as the 2010 inductee, he played quarterback for 4 seasons between 2003 and 2006 becoming the top ranking Exiles QB of all time. He passed for 4,252 yards and 56 touchdowns, both still Exiles records. He is also a member of the 21st Anniversary All Star Team at QB.
Matt joined the club after moving with work from the US and led the Exiles to their first playoff appearance in 2003 and first bowl game in 2005. He now lives in Brisbane, Australia and is tearing up the leagues down under for the Brisbane Rhinos!

He is the club’s top ranking interceptor of all time with 32 INT’s and second all time tackler with 599. He holds several other records for the club including most INT’s a season (7) and most INT’s in a game (4).
Matt was an Exiles stalwart and great team player, and also played an integral part on the club committee for many years setting the building blocks to helping the club become what it is today! He now comes to watch games with his family, Sarah and Charlotte.
