TIVERTON Town Football Club chairman and Crediton businessman Matthew Conridge says he has no regrets after appearing on BBC Two programme Dragons' Den – despite leaving with nothing.

The 27-year-old, whose online retail company Mamka is based at Lords Meadow Industrial Estate, spent two hours being grilled by the Dragons including Peter Jones and Deborah Meaden, only to come away empty handed.

Matthew, who won the Young Entrepreneur of the year at the 2011 Express and Echo Awards, said: "The Dragons didn't like me for whatever reason.

"We maybe struggled to understand each other."

Matthew says that despite the lack of investment just being on the show was a great experience and visits to Mamka's website have risen since the show was aired. He is now offering people the chance to invest through the crowd funding website, Crowdcube.
