Ryan Harley returns to Exeter City on loan

Former Grecian returns to St James Park

Exeter City have completed the loan signing of Ryan Harley from Swindon Town.

Harley originally moved to St James Park from Weston-super-Mare in November 2007 and went on to play 144 times in City colours in his first spell, finding the net on 32 occasions.  Amongst those goals were a crucial goal in the 2007/08 Conference play-off semi-final against Torquay, a brace in a 2-0 win against Leeds United, and an 82nd-minute winner against Huddersfield on the final day of the 2009/10 season which kept the Grecians in League 1.

Since leaving the Park to join Swansea City in 2011, the attacker has represented Brighton & Hove Albion, MK Dons (on loan) before joining Swindon in July 2013.  Harley featured 25 times for the Robins last season, but he has not made a competitive appearance since March.

Ryan’s loan is initially scheduled to keep him at St James Park until January.  He will wear squad number 33.
