An Aberdeen legend of the 30's, Armstrong developed a great understanding, bordering on the telepathic, with Willie Mills to form one of the most prolific front partnerships in British football. Scored the Dons goal in the 1937 Cup Final against Celtic, he joined the Dons from Port Glasgow in 1931. Top scorer at Pittodrie for four consecutive seasons before the outbreak of war virtually finished his top-flight career, although he did play a number of matches for Aberdeen during the war years. Capped for Scotland and was club record scorer before Joe Harper, although his goals per game ratio was better.

In August 1946, Matt was appointed as the first ever coach of Crystal Palace, not that long after his transfer from the Dons to Queen of the South.
