Matt Taylor will be aiming for promotion with Exeter City in the Sky Bet League Two 2019-20 season.

Point outside play-offs last season


The Grecians finished ninth-place in 2018-19 on 70 points – a point below seventh-place Newport County in the play-off spots.

Exeter had a pretty impressive first season without ex-boss Paul Tisdale last term, but their bad form at the end of the campaign proved costly after they won just two of their last eight games.

And they will be hoping to maintain a good level of consistency in 2019-20 and finish in the top seven.

Matt Taylor


Former Exeter City defender Matt Taylor became Grecians boss in June 2018, following Paul Tisdale’s departure for MK Dons – after 12 years in charge at St James Park.

It’s Taylor’s first managerial job, with his only other previous experience coming as a player-coach at non-League side Bath City in 2016.

And the 37-year-old will be dreaming of taking the Grecians back to Sky Bet League One in just his second season as boss.



The Grecians have a large nucleus of their squad already under contract for the 2019-20 campaign, including Nicky Law, Pierce Sweeney, Craig Woodman, Jordan Tillson, and Dean Moxey.

James Hamon, Luke Croll, Jimmy Oates, Felix Norman and Max Smallcombe have all left St James Park this summer, after being released.

Exeter have signed midfielder Nigel Atangana from Cheltenham Town, and Carlisle United defender Tom Parkes.


But Hiram Boateng left to join MK Dons, while goalkeeper Christy Pym made the move to Peterborough United. 

Grimsby Town 2019-20 season tickets are available here.
