As a tricky left-sided midielder, Matt Hazley rose though the ranks at Stoke City to make his debut on the final day of the 2005/06 in a 1-0 defeat by Coventry City. He won Youth and three Under-21 caps while at the Britannia Stadium.

After being released by Stoke he played briefly with Stafford Rangers before joining Scottish First Division side, Airdrie United where he normally played at left-back. With Airdrie he came on as a substitute in a penalty shoot-out Scottish Challenge Cup Final win over Ross County. Also in the Diamonds side at the time was former Northern Ireland Youth international, Marc Smyth.

Hazley returned home in 2010 and signed with Newry City. Released after Newry's 2011 relegation from the IFA Premiership, he joined Crusaders early in the following campaign. Having found chances limited at Seaview, Hazley moved on to Dungannon Swifts for the 2012/13 season and topped his season off by scoring an extra-time winner in the Mid-Ulster Cup final against Banbridge Town.
