Jake Taylor signs new deal at St James Park

Captain Jake Taylor says he is excited about the future at Exeter City having put pen to paper on a new deal at St James Park.

The midfielder, who has been an integral part of the team over the past two-and-a-half seasons, says the club is moving in the right direction and he was keen to tie down his future at St James Park because of that.

“I am very pleased,” he said. “The future at Exeter City is exciting. Since Matty (Taylor) has come in he has showed us it is completely different this year and it is definitely something I want to be involved in going forward.”
