Matthew Spangher (born 23 April 1987) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League.


Spangher was recruited as the number 34 draft pick in the 2005 AFL Draft from Eastern Ranges. In 2006, he only played one WAFL reserves game for East Fremantle, before sustaining a groin injury which kept him out for the rest of the season.

In 2007, he played the season with East Fremantle in the WAFL,as a defender. After his WAFL performances in the first 3 rounds of 2008, he made his AFL debut in the round 4, 62 point loss to Sydney at ANZ Stadium, picking up 12 disposals and 7 marks.
