........two! Both ex Exeter, both 33 year olds, Robbie Simpson a forward and Ryan Harley a mid-fielder who had a loan spell with us some seasons ago.
Nothing to set the heather on fire, it looks like 2 short term contracts for experienced league 2 players to help us get out of it PDQ.
There's hope for Lewie yet. ;)

The way I see it they are both insurance value, especially Simpson. It probably means both Chuks and Sow are staying but will take some time coming back from injury.

Seen Harley play several times (remember his loan spell with us in 2012/13) including in the league 2 play-offs last season, think he's an above average league 2 player but not much more. Nicky Law in Ryan Harley out, good business by Exeter City.

Robbie Simpson, missed the whole of last season and a fair bit of the season before due to injury and looks nothing more than a low league journeyman with a goal scoring ratio of 1 goal in every 6 games, hardly prolific but as with all our other new players, he has to be given a chance and hopefully Tisdale can get the best out of him.

Another Robbie...

Tisdale must be a footballing genius - I can see little to get excited about in any of our signings so far, which must be a reflection of how little I know. The average team quality seems to be going down not up. All very league two, which I hope doesn't mean we're planning on staying a while.

Having said that, while the wage bill might be the only thing that is looking upward, the average wage is going down. So a plus there then. Thank God for the World Cup.

Tisdale must be a footballing genius -


If he can win automatic promotion with our current squad then I totally agree.
