Date of birth
Striker Jonathan Forte joined the Grecians in July 2018.
The 31-year-old put pen to paper with the Grecians after suffering similar heartbreak last season as his Notts County side missed out in the play-offs last season.
He began his career with Sheffield United where he made his debut in 2003 before having a succession of loan moves to Doncaster Rovers and Rotherham United. The former England youth international then went on to play over 100 times for Scunthorpe United before earning himself a move to Nigel Adkins’ Southampton. First team chances were hard to come by at St Mary’s as Jonathan went on to have loan spells with Preston North End, Notts County and Crawley Town, before returning back to his first club, Sheffield United.
Two years with Oldham Athletic followed where he helped himself to 18 goals over two seasons before moving to Meadow Lane to join Notts County. Jonathan would go on to play 79 times for the Magpies scoring 20 goals ahead of his move to St James Park.
