Academy graduate succeeds Jake Taylor

Exeter City striker Matt Jay, who scored 20 goals last season, has been named the new captain of Exeter City. 

The 25-year-old academy graduate will take over the role from his departed predecessor Jake Taylor, who left the club at the end of last season. 

Grecians manager Matt Taylor said: “He’s still a young player really, but he has been here a long time. His attitude – he had to wait for his opportunity and then seize it.

“Last season he was player of the season by an absolute mile and he is a huge influence in the changing room as well. I feel he can handle the role well.

“This is also a result of his upbringing. What a great character he is, and credit has to go to his family for that.”
