A stunning strike late strike from Nicky Law kept Exeter City’s 100 per cent start to the season going as they recorded a 1-0 win away at Stevenage.
The Grecians had created the better chances throughout the match and had built up a head of steam in the closing stages when a half cleared corner found Law on the edge of the box and he hit a sweet volley, with the outside of his boot, into the bottom corner.
Jonny Maxted says it was the ambition shown by manager Matt Taylor that helped convince him to sign for Exeter City.
The 25-year-old will officially join Exeter City on July 1, but could play for the Grecians this evening in our pre-season friendly with Jersey, if approval is granted from his current club Accrington Stanley.
Jonny came through the ranks with Doncaster Rovers and has spent time with the likes of Forest Green Rovers and Guiseley. Last season he played 26 times for Stanley as he helped them to secure another season in the third tier of English football.
Alex Fisher says he cannot wait to turn out for the Grecians at St James Park after agreeing a deal to sign for Exeter City following his departure from Yeovil Town.
Alex, who began his early career with Oxford United before going on to play in Spain, Belgium and Italy, before having spells with Mansfield Town, Torquay United and Motherwell, is manager Matt Taylor’s fourth summer signing and is looking forward to getting started with City.

Exeter City have signed Huddersfield Town full-back Jaden Brown on loan until the end of the season.
The highly-rated defender has represented England at under-19 level and is known for his pace and ability to get and up and down the wing.
Speaking about the signing, City manager Matt Taylor said: “He is a dynamic left sided defender. We have got the experience of Craig Woodman and Dean Moxey who can cover that position, but this lad is going to get up and down that touchline time and time again.
Kane Wilson says he has unfinished business with Exeter City having agreed to join the club on loan again until the end of the season.
Kane, 18, who has represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, spent the majority of last season on loan at St James Park where he made 22 appearances for the Grecians and scored his first goal in senior football in a 2-1 victory over Barnet.
Exeter City fell to a 3-2 defeat in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup against Blackpool.
Three first-half goals for the Tangerines gave the visitors what proved to be an unassailable lead at St James Park, despite a phenomenal effort from the Grecians in the second-half that left them a goal short of what would have been an incredible second-half comeback.
