Play-off semi-final goalscoring Grecian returns to the club on full-time basis
Wayne Carlisle says he is absolutely delighted to be back involved with Exeter City on a full-time basis having accepted a coaching role at the club.
Following Danny Butterfield’s departure to Southampton in mid-September, Wayne has joined City in a coaching capacity that will see him help across the academy and the first team at the club.
Wayne played for the Grecians between 2006 and 2008 and scored in both legs of the play-off semi-final victory over Torquay United as City got promoted back to the Football League.
Wayne had previously been working at Ivybridge Community College, as well as at Exeter City academy, but now joins the staff at the Cliff Hill training ground on a full-time basis.
“I absolutely delighted to be back involved,” said Wayne. “It is a club I have great affection for. I moved to this area to join Exeter. That must have been 12 or 13 years ago and I had good times here, gaining promotion under Paul (Tisdale). I also have a good relationship with the staff here so I am delighted that Paul saw fit to bring me back in to be involved with the first team and across the club again.
“I have been working in the academy for quite some time, supporting the youth players coming through and now delighted to be in and seeing a lot of those players progress into the first team and supporting them at the next level.”
Everybody at Exeter City welcomes Wayne back to the club. Andy Tillson will also be continuing as a first team coach indefinitely on a part-time basis.
