Exeter City appoint backroom staff

Wayne Carlisle has replaced outgoing Eric Kinder as assistant manager

Exeter City have promoted Wayne Carlisle to the role of assistant manager, following the departure of Eric Kinder.

The Grecians' number two has returned to Carlisle United, to take up the role of academy manager.

On the change, City boss Matt Taylor told the official club website: “Eric is leaving to go back to Carlisle United and take up a really good position back there.

“He was fantastic for what he did for me in my first season. His experience that I had alongside me was so beneficial to myself as a new, young manager.

“However, football moves on pretty quickly and Wayne Carlisle will step into that assistant manager’s role. So I am pleased with the coaching aspect of my backroom staff, with Wayne and Dan Green.

The club has also made five new additions to Taylor's backroom team.

Matthew Higgins replaces the retiring Mike Radford as club secretary, Steve Hale is the new goalkeeping coach, whilst Connor Durbridge (strength and conditioning coach), Gareth Law (physio) and Dan Feasey (physio) also join.

Taylor added: “I am trying to shape the team behind the team in the right direction and hopefully we will all be focused on the same thing which is results.”
