💬 Christy: "Last season we kept 15 clean sheets and I am looking to go better than that."

Christy Pym targeting more clean sheets this season

2 August 2018

Exeter City goalkeeper Christy Pym is looking forward to the start of the season and is targeting more shutouts for the 2018/19 campaign.

Following a hugely successful 2017/18 season that included 54 appearances and 15 clean sheets, Christy is hoping to go a few better this campaign.

"Last season we kept 15 clean sheets and I am looking to going better than that and hopefully reach 18/19 this year," said Christy.  

City have made six signings this summer. Speaking about the new boys and how they have settled in Christy, added: "They have settled in very well. They are all good lads. There has not been one in there that has been a bad influence on anyone.

"They have all brought in their positive ideas and their experience - in a lot of the cases - so it is exciting times."

There has also been a new goalkeeping coach, with Chris Weale taking over from Mel Gwinnett who left to join MK Dons in the summer.

Speaking about Chris' influence, Christy added: "He has brought in a lot of new ideas that I haven't worked with before. It has been very positive. He is a good coach, a good man and we have a good connection already."

City play Carlisle United this Saturday in the opener, so what is Christy expecting from them?

"Yes, it is going to be tough," he said. "They have got a new manager in John Sheridan so we know it will be a tough game. He has done a good job wherever he has gone. He has always set his teams to be hard to beat and I am sure it will be the same on Saturday."
