A central midfield player, Alex Byrne is a prime example of the success of the player progression pathway at the Exeter City Academy. From North Devon, the left-footed second-year scholar began at the Barnstaple Advanced Development Centre at under-9 level, before being brought into the Academy at under-11 where he has continued to progress through the youth ranks. Byrne featured for the first-team in pre-season ahead of the 2014/15 season, playing against Reading, Swansea City and Torquay United.
He had a successful loan spell at Weston-super-Mare during the 2015/16 season, putting in some impressive performances for the Seagulls in the National League South.
