Exeter City Women have completed the signing of talented midfielder Zoe Cunningham.
The Plymouth Argyle Captain becomes the first addition to the Grecians squad this summer.
Cunningham began her career at the Arsenal Ladies Centre of Excellence before joining Reading Women. She relocated to Devon in 2016 and signed for Plymouth Argyle. A brief spell at Buckland Athletic, where Cunningham played six times, was interrupted by COVID suspensions and she re-signed for Plymouth in 2021.
Since her return, Cunningham has further enhanced her reputation as one of Tier Three’s most complete midfield talents, scoring twenty times in fifty-three appearances. Cunningham was voted the Southern Premier Player of the Season in 2021/22 and was voted the Greens' Player of the Season in 2022/23 following another series of important performances and vital goals.
Cunningham is no stranger to City fans; she scored a fantastic free kick when the two sides met in 2021 at St James Park and captained the Pilgrims against the Grecians at the recent Devon County Cup Final.
Joint City Manager Abbie Britton is delighted to have added more quality to the team: “It says everything about what we are building here that a player of Zoe’s ability wants to be a part of it. We had targets in mind for the summer and she was high on that list.
"It is great to have her with us and our midfield options are, in my opinion, on a par with any team in the division above. We are really looking forward to working alongside Zoe and helping her maximise her undoubted talent.”
