26 June 2018 : Grecians Sign Up Former Glovers Centre-Back
Former Yeovil Town defender Aaron Martin will be playing in League Two next season. Having left Oxford United at the end of last season, the 28 year old has agreed a deal with Exeter City, penning a contract of an unspecified length. Having had a career that took in Southampton, Birmingham City and Coventry City, Martin's time at the Kassam Stadium has been rather luke warm, managing just 30 appearances for them in the two years that he was there.

Martin has become new Grecians manager Matt Taylor's first signing since he replaced Paul Tisdale, and so starts rebuilding a side that lost in the League Two play-offs. Taylor has said of his new acquisition:

"Aaron is a player with a lot of experience playing at a higher level. He is a good age and is highly motivated to drive the team on to the next level. Aaron is a strong, tall, ball playing centre half and it is important that we have a lot of options defensively. I'll be looking to boost our defensive ranks further over the next few weeks."

With the exception of his early career with Eastleigh, this will be the first time that the Isle of Wight born player has signed permanently for a club as low as the fourth tier. After his fairly brief 14 game stay at Huish Park during the 2014-15 season, he signed for Coventry City, initially on loan, before moving across to Oxford. But he dropped out of their side in February 2018, and was involved in only 12 League One fixtures during Oxford's 2017-18 season.

Exeter have also confirmed their new assistant manager, with former Preston North End and Carlisle United coach Eric Kinder arriving at St James Park. He will join former Glover Chris Weale, who left Dorchester last week to become the Grecians' goalkeeper coach.
