Former City striker talks about his time at St James Park

3 June 2020

Former Exeter City forward David Wheeler gave an exclusive interview on his time at the club.

The popular striker, who scored 21 goals for City in the 2016/17 including one at Wembley Stadium in the League Two play-off final, talked to marketing manager Scott Palfrey about how his move to St James Park came about with a stroke of luck in his final bid to make a career in professional football.

He touched on his relationships with Steve Perryman and Paul Tisdale, what it was like to return to St James Park with MK Dons and his hopes for promotion and another crack at the Champioship with his current team Wycombe Wanderers.

Speaking about his relationship with the Exeter City fans, David said: "I loved playing at St James Park. I was just very, very lucky because there is not a lot you can do if fans take to you or they don't, but I was fortunate. I had a very, very good relationship and affinity with the fans at Exeter and it was a very big part of my time  there. From me struggling to get a regular starting place there and warming up and having the fans chant my name from the 60th minute. It is a really nice feeling to know you are appreciated in that way."
