It's been a full month since Exeter City's disastrous loss in the League Two play-off final to Northampton. It may not seem like it, but that heartbreaking and inexplicable defeat is already fading into the past, and attention must now turn to the 2020/2021 season.

Could the team climb out of the bottom of the barrel on the next attempt, or will this season...

Like club-mate Phil Dollman, who himself agreed a similar deal last week, both will form part of Rob Baxter’s squad as they gear up for next month’s return to action in both the Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup....
