✍️ Welcome Tristan Abrahams

Young striker joins on loan from Norwich City

3 July 2018

Exeter City is delighted to announce the signing of Tristan Abrahams on a season long loan from Norwich City.

A talented forward, Tristan becomes the fourth signing of the summer transfer window for the Grecians as manager Matt Taylor continues to mould his squad ahead of the new season.

Tristan, who is a product of Leyton Orient’s youth set up, will join on a season-long loan deal having signed for Norwich in 2017 after impressing at Brisbane Road with Orient.

The youngster played 21 matches in the Canaries’ under-23 side last season in the Premier League Division 2, netting five times and making three assists.

On Tristan’s arrival, manager Matt Taylor said:

“He is a powerful, bull like, centre forward. Although he is not a monster in terms of height, he will very much use his body to physically dominate opposition defenders and look to play with his back to goal.

“He will work his socks off and he has a good personality for a young lad in terms of his work rate and he is a good character. The recommendations and the footage we have watched have been excellent.

“Matt Gill played a part in him coming here. He’s part of Matt’s under-23s group at Norwich and he is ready for first team football. He complements the other centre forwards that we have at the club in terms of Jayden Stockley, Matt Jay, Jonathan Forte and now Tristan. I’m delighted to have four real good options at the top of the pitch.

“The experience that he had at Leyton Orient got him his move to Norwich, so he was excelling in League Two 18 months ago as a young kid. Now, 18 months on, he is physically and technically a better player. Norwich have worked on him, developed him, and we’ll do exactly the same. He is here to develop and improve and really invest in the club and invest in his own development. If we can develop him as a player then he is going to be a real handful.”
