✍️ Jonathan Forte signs for City

Striker becomes the Grecians second summer signing

26 June 2018

Exeter City is delighted to announce the signing of striker Jonathan Forte who arrives at St James Park following his departure from Notts County.

The 31-year-old arrives at the club as new City boss, Matt Taylor’s, second summer signing and will bring a great deal of experience to the City dressing room.

Having come through the ranks at Sheffield United where he made his debut in 2004 as a youngster, Jonathan has since gone on to represent the likes of Scunthorpe United, Southampton and Oldham Athletic, where he spent two seasons playing over 60 times.

He arrived at Meadow Lane in 2016 and played 38 times for the Magpies last season finding the net 10 times, the last of which came in the Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final against Coventry City.

On Jonathan’s arrival, manager Matt Taylor said: “Jonathan is an athletic, dynamic, attacking player with pace and has a lot of experience playing in League Two and a higher standard.
 
“He will complement the attackers currently at the club and his work rate and mobility will provide a slightly different dynamic to our front line. Jonathan finished the season strongly, so I aim to get him fit and firing for us.”

“The player’s attitude and character are important. I’m bringing in not just good players, but good characters to the club.”
