Nicky Law: "My gut was telling me to come to Exeter”

Nicky Law discusses his move to St James Park

2 July 2018

Exeter City’s latest recruit Nicky Law says he listened to his gut feeling when deciding on making the move to St James Park.

The highly experienced midfielder becomes Matt Taylor’s third summer signing and will bring an ability to get forward and help create things in the Grecians’ attack.

After taking a look around last Thursday, Nicky then decided to join the club in a move he is excited about.

He said: “I’m delighted to get it sorted. I came down last week and spoke to Matt and I was really impressed with the facilities here and the direction that the manager wants to take the club.

“The club has gone close over the last two years but the aim this year will be to go one better. I went with my gut and it was telling me to come to Exeter.”

Nicky has played for some big names in both England and Scotland having spent two years at Motherwell before joining Rangers. The former Sheffield United youngster also played 101 times for Rotherham United and represented Bradford City 43 times last season.

With a wealth of experience in higher levels of the game, Nicky is hoping that he can play a big part in helping the Grecians to go one better in the 2018/19 season and achieve promotion.

He continued: “Hopefully, my experience will benefit the team, it’s something the manager spoke to me about. I had some good experiences at some big football clubs, a lot of highs and a lot of lows, which come together to give you that experience. Any help that I can give to the other lads here then I will be more than happy to give it.”

Nicky also says that City fans can expect to see their latest recruit in the middle of midfield, but the 30-year-old could well be deployed from either wing due to his versatility.

He said: “I’m quite versatile. My preferred position would be central midfield, but I’ve played quite a lot of my career off the left. I’m certainly not an out and out winger but I can play left and come inside or play in the number 10 role. I like to get on the ball and try and make things happen.”

The midfielder also revealed that he is excited to make the move to Devon and will be relocating with his family to the area.

“I’m based in Sheffield at the moment, so it is quite a big move.” Nicky said: “I know Jonathan Forte as we were in the same youth team at Sheffield United. I was born in Plymouth from when my dad played for Plymouth, although we left when I was young.

“It’s not something that’s bothered me before, I’ve moved to Scotland before and on Thursday we had a good drive around and I like the area.”
