📝 Welcome, Gary Caldwell!

Exeter City Football Club is pleased to announce Gary Caldwell as our new First Team Manager.

Gary, 40, joins the club on a long term contract. The former Celtic and Scotland defender, who was most recently assistant manager at Hibernian, will join the players and staff at the training ground today in preparation for tomorrow’s away game against Derby County.

Prior to his appointment at Hibs, Gary managed Partick Thistle and Chesterfield; these appointments followed a stint as manager of Wigan who he led to a successful promotion to the Championship.

In a joint statement, Nick Hawker, chair of Exeter City Supporters’ Trust, and Julian Tagg, club president, said the club was delighted that Gary had accepted the position.

“As a supporter-owned club, Exeter City is unique and it was vitally important that we chose the right person to continue our journey. The club is in a strong position, having been promoted to League One and made a great start to the campaign, which sees us in eighth position in the table. Gary brings a great deal of experience to our club and we’re excited and optimistic for the future.”

“We would also like to put on record our thanks to interim manager Kevin Nicholson and Jon Hill for stepping in to manage the team over the last couple of weeks.”
