Exeter City sign Alex Fisher from Yeovil

The 28-year-old forward is Matt Taylor's fourth signing of the Summer

Fisher will go straight into Matt Taylor’s squad who begin their pre-season fixtures away at Jersey on Friday, June 28. The forward will be looking to integrate himself into the group as he goes about trying to help City to success in the 2019/20 campaign. 

“I consider myself a really hardworking number nine or 10," he said. "I will run the channels and win my headers, and given the chance, I like to think I’ve got an eye for goal. Above all else I’ll give you hard work, a strong work ethic, and I believe all the rest will fall into place after that.

“St James Park is the ground where I made my first ever professional start, so I’ve got memories of the stadium. I played last year when the new stand was finished, and it really added a new dimension.

“Playing down towards the Big Bank is a really formidable place to play against, so being able to shoot towards it for the club will be a real motivation for me.”

Alex also revealed it was the ambition shown by manager Matt Taylor that helped convince him to join the club, as well as the facilities at the stadium and the training ground.

He continued: “The manager’s vision for the season is how it’s always been with this club, it’s a really competitive league and it’s a club that is going to be up there. It’s got great facilities, a really strong fanbase, and it was a no brainer for me."
