30 January 2014

Midfielder leaves the Grecians

Exeter City can confirm that midfielder Tommy Doherty has left the club by mutual agreement, with no imminent move to another club lined up.

The 34-year-old midfielder has registered total of 445 club appearances and scored 11 goals over career spanning 18 years.  He came through the academy at hometown club Bristol City and represented them over 200 times, before featuring for Queens Park Rangers, Yeovil Town, Wycombe Wanderers, Hungarian outfit Ferencvarosi, Bradford City, Newport County AFC and Bath City before moving to Exeter City in July 2012.  Doherty was twice named in the PFA League 2 Team of the Year in 2007 and 2009 during spells with Wycombe.

He also represented Northern Ireland on nine occasions between 2003 and 2005.  His international debut came against Italy in Campabasso, and he won his last cap against England at Old Trafford.

Doherty played 45 times for the Grecians during his 18 months at St James Park, including 13 competitive first-team appearances during the 2013/14 season.  Most recently, he turned out for City in the St Luke’s Bowl quarter-final win against Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

Tommy leaves Exeter City with the best wishes from everyone at the club for his future.
