Pierce played 49 games for the Grecians last season, scoring nine goals.  

The popular Irish-born full-back started his footballing career with Bray Wanderers where he was spotted by former Exeter City manager and then head of the Reading academy Eamonn Dolan. 

Pierce never played a first-team match for the Royals, but won the 2013/14 Under-21 Premier League Cup during his time at the Madjeski Stadium. 

Having been recommended to City by Eamonn, Pierce came on trial at the club during the summer of 2016 and, after impressing in pre-season games, he signed as the club’s 1931 fan-funded player.

 

The 1931 Fund – named after the year City made the quarter-finals of the FA Cup – is a group of supporters who, through a monthly payment, raise money to pay or help pay for an extra member of Exeter City’s squad.
