Having become a member of the Grecians’ Academy as an under-11, Connor Riley-Lowe
was converted from a left-sided midfielder into a left-back, where he continues to offer good attacking threat.
Riley-Lowe, raised in south Devon, regularly captained the under-18 side during his Academy days, with his reliability and understanding of tactical basics being a key reason for this. At the end of his scholarship, he was offered a contract to turn professional.
The full-back made his professional debut in a Capital One Cup first round tie against AFC Bournemouth in August 2014, replacing Craig Woodman
with half an hour remaining.
