Ollie Watkins is, perhaps, best-known for scoring a double against Exeter City’s local rivals Plymouth Argyle at the end of the 2015/16 season.

His final goal in that match came in stoppage time as he jinked his way past two Argyle players before firing a left-foot shot into the top corner of the goal to help the Grecians do the double over their local rivals.

That goal came in a run of eight strikes from 10 games for the Newton Abbot youngster which saw him attract a lot of attention from Championship clubs.

Ollie is another player to graduate from the club’s youth academy having joined City at the age of nine. 

He made his debut for City against Hartlepool United in May 2014 and scored his first goal for the club in a 3-1 defeat to Coventry City in the Football League Trophy the following season.
