💬 Pierce Sweeney on returning to City

Pierce Sweeney's 'first' interview

8 July 2021

Pierce Sweeney has said he is excited to be back at Exeter City after committing to the club on a two-year-deal.

The Irishman returned to the club this week after his departure from Swindon Town, having originally signed with the Robins on July 1st.

“I’ve been here a long time and it’s good to be back, to be staying,” Sweeney said. 

“I’ve had a bit of a strange week but after I was available again, there was only one place I was going to come back to. It was easy enough for me, and for Matt as well.”

Sweeney is looking forward to meeting some of the new signings Matt Taylor has made over the last few weeks, with the pre-season schedule that is currently underway the perfect opportunity for the new look side to gel. 

“There’s always been a lot of new faces over the years and I’ve made a lot of friends along the way. The new lads seem pretty decent and I’ve played against a couple of them too so I know what they’re about.

“Pre-season is going to be difficult and we’ve got a few decent games over the next few weeks. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new lads and young lads, seeing what they could do.”

Sweeney has also been able to check out the new surface at SJP, and he is impressed by the hard work that has been put in by the grounds team. 

“The surface is a lot different to last year - there’s no puddles! I think Chaz had a bee in his bonnet about some of my comments last year, but he’s done a fantastic job.

"He’s done so much good work over the off season and looking it now it looks in tip top shape."
