💬 Aaron Martin: "I have a lot of gratitude and praise towards them."

City defender grateful for rave reviews he earned from supporters on social media this season

5 September 2019

Exeter City defender Aaron Martin says the support he has received from fans this season has been really ‘touching’ following a good start to the campaign for him personally and the club.

The Grecians have won four and drawn two of their opening six games of the season with Aaron playing at the heart of a defence that has let in just three goals in League Two.

His performances, especially a late block against Morecambe which helped the Grecians to a 3-2 victory, have received rave reviews from supporters on social media and he says he has been pleased to have read them.

“It has been brilliant and I thank them all because I have been getting a lot of love off the fans and it is really touching to get that sort of stuff,” he said. “I thank them for welcoming me and keeping me going like they have been so I have a lot of gratitude and praise towards them.”

Aaron also adds that the team spirit in Exeter is brilliant and that should serve them well as they make the six-hour trip up the M5 and M6 to Carlisle on Saturday.

“It is probably longer than that,” laughed Aaron. “However, everyone gets on so well and we all have a laugh on the bus.

“It is an extremely long trip tomorrow, but everyone entertains themselves and we know the cause for going up there and we need to win because it makes everything coming back a hell of a lot better.

“The morale is very good at the moment, everybody is really enjoying it and we just need to keep that going.”

Speaking about Carlisle, Aaron added: “It is always tough up there. It is a big pitch. It is a really good team and they have got a good manager. They did bring in a lot of players so it is going to take a bit of time for them to gel. So it will be a real big test for us.”
