Troy Archibald-Henville is in his second spell at Exeter City having previously played for the Grecians between January 2009 and June 2012. 

London-born Troy began his career at Tottenham Hotspur. He would go on to captain Spurs’ reserve side and feature in the first-team squad on two occasions including for the North London derby in December 2007. 

He joined City on loan in January 2009. An imposing centre-half with a quick turn of pace, he made a big impact during his first stint in Devon, helping the Grecians clinch promotion to the third tier of English football. 

Following a brief return to North London, Troy returned for a second loan-spell at City in July 2009. This time there would be no return to Tottenham, though, as he put pen to paper on a permanent deal with the Grecians on February 1, 2010. A knee injury curtailed his 2009/10 campaign, but Troy would go on to make eighty-one appearances for the Grecians overall and secure the supporter’s player-of-the-year accolade for 2011/12. 

After spells with Swindon Town and Carlisle United, Troy returned to the Grecians in 2016 in what he described as a ‘homecoming’.
