Exeter City's academy has been relatively successful since the turn of the millennium as it has produced many players that have gone on to play in higher leagues, some even on the peak stages of the Premier League and European football.

First of all, Ollie Watkins is a player that has not reached magnificent heights but has established himself as a Premier League standard player at Aston Villa.

Aston Villa has been a struggling side under Steven Gerrard but Watkins has been a rare highlight linking up well with Danny Ings up front. Watkins possesses blistering pace but...

At the time of the writing of this article, the first games of the season for Exeter City F.C are just around the corner. After having spent 10 eventful, but very long, years in league two the Grecians finally managed to make their way into League One.

This was after nearly making the cut in both 2017 and 2018, where the team missed the promotion by the skin of their teeth. After a couple of years of trying to find their stride again, Matt Taylor spearheaded a strong campaign where Exeter City found themselves back in League One. The club also managed to do it in its 120th year...

Looking Ahead to Exeter's 22/23 Season

It’s been ten years since the Grecians were in League One, and after Matt Jay’s heroic 78th goal versus Barrow on the final day of the last season, they’ve made it back once again. So for this season, running from 2022 to 2023, things are looking up for Exeter. Still one of the only fan-run clubs in the English Football League - and high up on the chain at that, following AFC Wimbledon’s relegation into League Two - Exeter have made a great start to the new season.

With such a solid position as number two on the league table, there is a good chance of...
