Exeter City sign new striker

Ryan Bowman joins the Grecians from Scottish Premier League side Motherwell

The 27-year old says he's excited about joining Exeter having chatted to manager Matt Taylor and assistant manager Eric Kinder, who was his former youth team coach at Carlisle.

 

“There was a couple of clubs ringing up about me as I was coming to the end of my contract with Motherwell and I thought it was time for a change,” said Ryan.

 

“I spoke to the manager a few times and he sold the club to me really well. Eric Kinder is here too and I worked with him at youth team level and that was a big part in why I joined as well. I am just delighted to get started.

 

Ryan, who has played in League Two before for York City, has been at Motherwell for the past two and a half seasons, but admits he was keen to join City once he learned there was interest.

 

“When I heard there was interest, I was always looking at the results and it is an exciting time for the club,” he said. “Hopefully, we can push towards League One and I can be a big part of that and score as many goals as I can.

 

“I like to thing I am a target man. I hold the ball up, win my headers and link-up play and obviously score goals. That is the main thing the fans want to see from a striker and hopefully I can give them that.”

 

The transfer is still subject to international clearance and Football League approval.
