Aaron Martin: "I liked what he (Matt Taylor) had to say about the team that’s already here and the people he is bringing in"

Aaron Martin can't wait to get going at St James Park

26 June 2018

Exeter City’s latest signing Aaron Martin says it was how the manager Matt Taylor sold the club to him that convinced him to make the move to Devon.

The central defender completed his move to the Grecians on Monday following his departure from Oxford United at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

On his new manager, Aaron said: “Matt got in touch with my agent and then I spoke with him. We’ve had quite a few conversations, I really enjoyed it and I liked what he had to say about the team that’s already here and the people he is bringing in. I was really impressed.

“I liked his whole persona to be honest, with his ideas moving forward, what the club has in store over the next year or two and everything about it really appealed to me.”

Aaron has spent much of his career playing in the Championship and League One and feels that his experience could well help City push to go one better and achieve promotion this season.

He continued: “I think it will definitely help. My ambition is to push on with this club and move up the leagues again. The club was unlucky last year and the year before in the play-offs, but hopefully with what we have now, we have enough to push us over the line and go on.”

Aaron was limited to 19 appearances at the Kassam Stadium last year and suffered a ruptured achilles in 2016. But back fully fit now, the new City signing cannot wait to get going at his new club

He said: “I played a few games last year. I feel physically great, I’ve been a bit unlucky with a few injuries here and there. I had quite a bad one the year before last but, like I said, I feel great and I can’t wait to get playing.”
