Matt Taylor has continued to add to his Exeter City squad for the 2017/18 campaign with Nicky Law becoming the Grecians’ third signing of the summer.
Nicky joins on a free transfer after leaving Bradford City at the end of last season and brings with him a wealth of experience into the Grecians’ midfield.
The 30-year-old began his career with Sheffield United and spent time on loan with the likes of Yeovil Town and Bradford. He then went on to amass well over 50 appearances for Rotherham United before moving to Scotland to join Motherwell. A couple of years there then saw him make the move to Ibrox as he joined Scottish giants, Rangers, where he won the 2015/16 Scottish Championship.
After making 114 appearances for the club and finding the net 24 times, Nicky then returned to play for Bradford in 2016. He made 43 appearances for the Bantams last season as the club just missed out on the League One play-offs.
On his latest recruit, City boss Matt Taylor said:
“He is a good player, a League One player, it’s as simple as that. I’m delighted to have secured him as a signing, he’s going to be a very good player for us going forward.
“He has signed a long-term contract, so I see him playing a big part in terms of our progression as a club over the next couple of years.”
Matt Taylor also thinks that Nicky’s proven record in higher divisions will help City to push on in the 2018/19 campaign.
He continued: “Nicky has vast experience and he hasn’t missed many games through injury. He’s someone I can rely on, a good character, and I can trust him. But more importantly he is a good player.
“He is technically very good and positionally he is excellent as well. He will provide us with a bit of an attacking threat, he could play in the centre of midfield, he could play left, or he could play right.
“I’d like to think his best years are ahead of him. The way we are going to train here we will give him a real impetus in terms of his game going forward. He has made a big commitment with his family. He is moving down with his partner and child so I’m delighted that he has invested in the club and the area.”
