💬 Jake Caprice: "That is 100 per cent the aim. Go one better and get this club into League One.”

New full-back targets promotion having signed deal to play for the Grecians

6 August 2020

Jake Caprice has set his sights on helping Exeter City ‘go one better’ next season having signed for the club.

Jake, who won promotion from League Two with Tranmere Rovers in 2018/19, says he is pleased to have joined a club that has battled for promotion from the fourth tier of English football for a good few seasons now.

He says it was unfortunate the club just missed out last campaign, but he has set his sights on correcting that this season.

“Exeter are always a good footballing team,” he said. “They are always in an around the play-offs or pushing for promotion. They were unfortunate last year with missing out in the final, but they are a good team and they are always fighting for promotion so hopefully we will go one better this year. That is 100 per cent the aim. Go one better and get this club into League One.”

Having played 28 times for Tranmere Rovers in League One last season, Jake has not actually played a competitive match since March as the 2019/20 season was cut short due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  

He says it feels good to have got the deal over the line at Exeter and he is looking forward to getting back to playing football again.

“It feels really good,” he said. “Obviously, it has been a long time because of the lockdown and things like that, so it is great to get it over the line and I am happy to be here.

“Today was a lighter introduction to the session and into pre-season, but it was good to get the legs going again and to touch a football again.”

Asked to describe himself as a player, Jake added: “I am an attacking full-back. I like to get forward and chip in with assists and stuff like that, but defensively I like to get stuck in as well. I would say I am an all action full-back really.”
